NT Police are warning Territorians to watch out for a phone scam sweeping the Top End.
A series of reports have been made to NT Police, over the past couple of days, of a scam claiming to be from the National Broadband Network (NBN Co).
According to a NT Police spokesperson, the call involves an automated message warning that you haven't registered with the NBN and your current internet service will be turned off within 24 hours.
People are then prompted to press "1" to discuss the matter further.
"The scammers can be very convincing, however their goal is to simply either get a hold of your money or your personal identifying information," Senior Constable Jason Corbett from the NT Cybercrime Unit said.
"The important thing to remember is that the NBN Co will never make unsolicited calls or try to sell you broadband services.
"The NBN Co is the company building and operating Australia's wholesale broadband network, it does not sell broadband packages directly to consumers."
Pressing "1" takes you to a person pretending to be a technician, who will then ask for personal details such as your credit card details to transfer you to another internet pack.
NT Police are reminding people to never disclose bank account details or other personal information to an unsolicited caller.
"Do not trust anyone calling to inform you that your internet will be disconnected. Instead hang up and then contact your Internet Service Provider directly on a known and trusted number."
If you have suffered a financial loss or have provided personal identifying information, then you should report this to your bank immediately and to police on 131 444 or go to the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN).
