    It's a legit number. This is the number Optus calls you from if they need to talk to you. I was on a live chat with a Optus Representative and they asked me to give them a number for them to call me back on.

    I was complaining to optus about my high data usage. Then hung up and got call from this number. They did not speak and hung up after a couple of seconds.

    This number called me, disconnected my mobile and hacked into my phone. They withdrew all our money from all accounts. Under investigation by police and bank. Contact police if this happens to you and block all internet banking ASAP.

    This is a scam and not Optus calling you. Do not pick up and do not respond. They simply want access to your phone. Do not call back

    Thanks to your site I know now who calls from this number I was using chat with Optus and the agent was a fool. I gave him a crap review and now I am getting constant calls from this number with "no one" there. Time wasting fools I am going to have to block this number

    It is not a legit number. Optus confirmed this with me on 30/07/2018. Their response over live chat was "Please ignore the call as it's not from Optus. If you have any clarifications on this, you can call our direct customer service at 133937"

    Caller: Definitely optus

    This is quite strange, I got a missed call and called the number back, says "Optus advises that the number you have dialled is disconnected etc etc"

    They called back this evening and I answered, turns out it's one of the Optus counterparts I've been working with on a project for a client next week. This is from Optus Malaysia, weirder thing is when I answered it the caller ID then changed to possibly his actual extension - I don't know wether this is because I'm on Optus too?

    So I'd say if you've answered and they've asked for some personal information just say you'll call back a verified optus number - I wouldn't be comfortable just giving my details to anyone that calls.

    IT'S A SCAM .... CALL OPTUS - WHO TELL YOU THAT THEY ARE INVESTIGATING IT AND THAT THEY NEVER CALL FROM A LANDLINE NUMBER SUCH AS THIS. DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT - CALL THEM YOURSELVES (USING THEIR ACTUAL NUMBER).
    COME ON GUYS - USE THOSE BRAINS AND STOP POSTING: "LEGIT".

    Caller from this number today claimed to be an Optus representative - asking questions that would breach Australian Privacy laws. Not a legitimate Optus number. Optus advised us after enquiring about it that they are a scammer - block them and update your security on your devices. (The caller has also nuisance called a relative i.e calls them and then hangs up when they answer - approx 20 times that I am aware of).
