Robo calls from Telstra?

Answered

I am receiving recorded calls from a private number, ostensibly from Telstra, asking me to enter my personal details e.g., birth date. I do not trust giving out these details when the caller is not verified.

 

There are no ways of contacting Telstra to check if these are genuine other than this crowd support page. Can anyone please tell me if these calls are genuine or not?

These calls are not genuine. Telstra or any other legitimate company would never ask for personal details using a robo call.

Wonderful, thanks. that was my suspicion too. It was especially problematic in that the voice was the same one used in Telstra's own phone services. Is there any way to report this and have the number (even as a private number) blocked?
