Finding a phone number used by a potential scammer

Good morning

 

It appears that my 93 year old mother with dementia might be being scammed by old calling financial advisors. She has made an appointment with them to come to her house but did not take down my contact details.

 

Is there anyway I can find the numbers of incoming calls she had a week ago? There will not be very many

 

Thanks

The Telstra system only provides a record of outgoing calls.

Only if the handset has a call log built in. Note: it may not be a real number if it is scammers, they can mask the Caller ID.

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