We are calling from NBN and y have 24h

Post by TuSlayer » Fri Jan 25, 2019 12:05 pm

Got a weird machine voiced call from who claim to be NBN and y have 24h to fix by pressing "1".
I assume this is a scam call like the "we are Telstra and want to fix your internet"

Though i'd give everyone a heads up....

That has to be a scam call and thank you for sharing the information here. Please ignore the call and hangup in future, without following the instructions.

Is there someway to introduce a handshake to verify the sender to stop spoof calls?
Like a 'reject all calls' that 'cant be verified' with a ping to the listed call number...

Where did you receive this call? on your mobile, land line or VOIP ? is the caller number visible with a specific number or is it anonymous ?
