[AusNOG] "Telstra" scammers

How are they making calls into AU mobile networks ?

Surely they need a SIP service as a starting point.

Is it a VoIP seller not performing checks ??

Unfortunately not a lot can be done
I had a similar call today. Just blocked the numbers.
Probably a spoofed number as well

Just had a scam call from a female operator, called from "0432 594 523<tel:0432%20594%20523>" (probably a spoofed number), says her name is Selina from Telstra, that my modem has a virus. She gave her Telstra staff ID as C0527 (that's not a real Telstra staff ID, it starts with a 0 and it's too short) and hung up when I asked what her Team Leader or Manager's name and staff ID is.

So the "Telstra scammers" are still out there, trying to scam people.
