    NBN scam

    So NBN is meant to improve services eh?
    I have a ridiculously slow internet speed and it cuts out regularly plus my mobile does not work in the house.
    NBN is here and I book in
    The NBN expert comes and can't install anything as there are too many trees in the area and they can't get a signal ... well surprise surprise... thats what I have been telling them for years.
    A few days later I get someone ringing saying they are going to install a direct line and checked my DOB for verification then booked an appointment for today. They knew my name and address and phone number. So I booked in this morning and hung around the house very excited that at last I could have a good internet and phone connection. I admit I was a bit sceptical as the guy was Indian and I could not understand him and when he said someone would need to access my computer I told him that that was certainly never going to happen and I suggested he may get stabbed if he tried to force the issue so I guess that may have deregistered me as an easy scam.
    So of course noone showed up and I spent most of the day waiting.
    Rang NBN/Telstra and it was certainly a scam.
    So someone is getting info off NBN of names and addresses so they can go into home to access info and no doubt access bank account details and computer control. After an hour and a half I hung up after the transfer to unwelcome calls asked for my name, DOB and address to verify the complaint. What???
    Very ticked off to wait about for half a day but this scamming is getting way out of control.
    Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: "Wahoo!! What a ride!"

    That is pretty intense scam.

    How about a $50 gumtree special PC. Load that bad boy up with the weirdest porn you can find and let them fill their boots? Folder on the desktop "Bank account details" - Call the cops while they are trying to figure it out. Put popcorn in microwave. Bonus points for walking around in only a robe.
