SCAM male voice said they're from Optus he then started giggling after that he started asking for my phone number (the number he just called) he went on to say if I didn't no my phone number he could verify my details.......... I hung up Scam For sure.. Caller: I don't know
I didn't pick up.
They keep calling but don’t leave a message. Caller: Optus
A guy from Optus called Rony. Seemed legit. He had all the details of my current plan and seeing as my contract had expired (and I had paid off the device) he could recontract me for a new phone or I could continue with my current phone month to month for a lower price.
All seemed good except apparently Optus need my Driver's License or Passport Number to perform a credit check despite the fact I've paid every bill for the past 2 years on time. Not sure why a credit check would be needed. They conducted one before entering the contract so doesn't make sense to me at all.
optus call, confirmed and legit
I answered but there's no reply. I waited until the line was terminated by the caller. Then I searched for this no. online and voila... BTW my Optus contract is ending soon. I have been receiving anonymous calls lately. If it's Optus calling, then good luck to them because the last thing I'll do is to renew my contract with them just for the sake of retaliation. I believe the caller is scammer.
Hung up and blocked.
Said they were Optus but asked for personal details pretty much straigh away, claimed to be cleaning up outdated details their data-base. I didn't provide any information. Also said they would send a verifying text but didn't. Probably scamming for personal information, please beware. Caller: Optus
I rang Optus to confirm the number was legit and yes it was their Optus Sales team. The initial phone call seemed very informal and requested information on my account, so I was skeptical and felt it was a Scam. I provided feedback to Optus to improve the legitimacy of their sales call.
My alert said suspected scam so I didn't answer. wanted to up grade my plan with optus (im not on optus) and asked for my license number, passport number and credit card Caller: "Optus"
Someone named Nabil from Optus called me asking if this was my phone number and starts repeating it twice. Huh? I asked him where he got my number from, he said from the Adelaide Optus centre. Huh? He then said my plan was about to expire (which is untrue) and if I would be interested in going on a cheaper plan.I blocked the number. It's unclear if this is a scam or legit.
Number called me and the person on who rang said "Hello this is Sydney from Optus." and then hung up.
Blocked the number straight away. If there's an issue on my account, I get all my bills and updates over email and through my Optus app.
I checked the number, apparently Optus, and yes I do have a plan with them. BUT, had a call from that number last year and on checking, I had blocked it...Same number called me 08/09/20...Supposed to be blocked. Very thick accented Indian male called supposedly from Optus, wanting to verify my "order". He said the information in my "order" didn't match their records and he then asked for my Medicare number. What has THAT got to do with Optus? Definitely a scam, so I hung up on him. I answered the call but then got a message saying the number I dialled was not connected, I didn't dial it, I answered it. Number is now blocked. Caller: Optus Team
I was a little skeptical at first, but the caller had all my details - asked for my birth date, so I asked him and he had the date, just wanted to confirm the year. As it turned out, offered me a great Plan, and sent me a copy of the new contract, which had all other information, including my IMEI Number etc. This is NOT a Scam
It Sounds legit but definitely a SCAM from a fake optus salesman Optus Sales
