    had this same call myself the heavily accented girl was near impossible to understand told her I had trouble understanding her so she started yelling at me down the phone which made it impossible to understand her due to the distortion down the line and the back ground noise if deafening. Told me she would have to put me through to her supervisor stated his name was Neil employee No TL 5322032 I played dumb and made out I was having trouble following his instructions. He then started calling me profanities: 'F' bomb..female dog a few times and hung up on me. Charming!!!

    Report it to Telstra 1800 number - look up unwanted calls on their website. They will block the number for you. They should block it for everyone!! Complain to them.

    Had two calls today from this number at 6.55 am and 10.55 am. Both times, a lot of call centre type noise in the background, but then it hung up. I phoned Telstra who have now blocked that number on my line, but claim it is not a Telstra number and cannot identify the caller. They claim they cannot do anything because it is not a Telstra number, and suggested I report my concerns to Scamwatch! Ridiculous

    said he was from Telstra Technical Dept. I told him he was not from Testra and what was the phony accent for - before he could say anything else I hung up on him. Get overseas calls at least 3 times a week - it goes to my message bank but the number is blocked out - surely Telstra could do something.

    Pestering calls from the above number ...no person answering / await till message says [computerised] "Goodbye". This is both annoying at any time day/night and frightening when you [a female] are home alone. It petrifies me! Please help shut this number down.
    I rang it this morning and a computerised message states "not in service".
    Is it some perverted in-house creep getting off on pestering people.
    WHY is this still going on with a number of people? P O L I C E may be able to take action.
    Thank you for reading! Can I have this number blocked from my phone at least?
