Checking legitimacy of Telstra call

Twice a man, Alix Round, identifying as working for Telstra with an ID no T00077771679 has called my landline using an 02 mobile number. He claims Telstra is monitoring the speed of our internet connection, wants to send through some link or such to follow to improve the speed. I claimed he was a fraud and hung up. Do you make such calls? Our internet comes through a satellite not Telstra broadband.

Re: Checking legitimacy of Telstra call

No. It is a common scam. And never post your number in a public forum such as Crowdsupport, you'll just end up with more scams.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

No unexpected surprises

With direct debit, we’ll let you know before we take out your bill and give you a simple way to check it.

Spend less time worrying about bills, and more doing what you love.
