About six months ago, another one came by offerring a free landline for eighteen months. I said no thanks 'cause I didn't need it.

Honestly? It doesn't sound like Telstra. I would ring them to check and possibly report it.
The peeing incident is just bizarre.

Tbh I wouldn't imagine Telstra going door to door . They spend so much on advertising they wouldn't need too. They cold call I think. There is a link on the Telstra website to complain on.

Its people who are contracted through telstra.
They work on commission so they will say anything to get you to sign up most of it is a lie. They don't care cause once they sign you up and your unhappy they never have to deal with you again.
All they want is your signature.
Never speak to them, never sign anything. Telstra have some of the most expensive plans on the market and they are near impossible to cancel.

Who the hell would wee in someone's backyard? I wouldn't sign anything beyond that point regardless of the offer!

As a general rule I never entertain anyone selling anything door to door. I've dealt with a few people in my time who have worked for them; I've even known them to get enough personal details from you to fill the form out and when you decline the offer they still submit the paperwork with a forged signature & partner up in male/ female pairs to get through the telephone part.
I'd give it a miss.

I am terrible, whenever they come to the door selling anything as soon as they tell me where they are from I say my OH works for the opposition and gets staff discount.
Complete lie but if I want something I will go find it myself rather than being offered stuff from a stranger. My dad told me when I was a kid if a stranger offers you something good - run! I think he was talking lollies but it's similar!
It will be a contractor who visited you and they work on commission under some pretty harsh conditions. Should've had ID but how do you know what you're looking for? They seem to attract very naive or odd people to work door to door.
I mean what kind of person suggests that you talk inside YOUR home? Let alone pee in your backyard.

Go into a store. Even over the phone we have had nightmare dealings with Telstra offered us this that and the other and cheaper than we were paying. First bill arrived and so many hidden charges!!! Fortunately we used to work for Optus and knew all the trade tricks and so had clarified
So much, came down to it that the salesman had flat out lied. Two hours
On the phone and a lot of stress later it's sorted but I will NEVER not do it in a store ever again.
