NBN call alert

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

A NA­TIONAL Broad­band Net­work alert has warned peo­ple not to re­spond to un­so­licited call­ers or door knock­ers. A call is re­ceived with a ro­botic voice claim­ing the call is from NBN Co. Call­ers are told NBN is avail­able in the area and their in­ter­net will be dis­con­nected in 24 hours un­less they con­nect im­me­di­ately. Lis­ten­ers are asked to press 1 for a tech­ni­cian. Peo­ple who con­nect be­come a vic­tim of iden­tity theft, may lose money or be charged a pre­mium call fee. If some­thing seems sus­pi­cious, NBN Co urges peo­ple to con­tact their phone or in­ter­net provider.
