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. Had a missed call from (02) 8049 2850. Called back and got: "Optus advises the number you have called has been disconnected" 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. Called today on behalf of Optus, ask for my details said I'm not giving you my details, if you are really Optus you should have that infront of you, they they hung up. These people need to behind bars its criminal what they are doing. Been calling me for the last three days, either hangs up when I answer or silence. Tried calling back but "Optus advises the number you have called has been disconnected" 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 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. 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 If it is Optus, the CEO of Optus should be very concerned that the call centre operators they hire are being flagged as scammers. Rang At 1am said it was Optus and I owed them money asking me to pay. I said no and to ring back the next day. They said they would ring back the next morning. My phone way illegal ported the next day Optus Caller: Optus
It was Optus sales, calling regarding an order I had placed
Caller: (02) 8049 2850
Legit call from Optus to confirm my preorder.
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.
This is definitely Optus. I called back number (02) 8049 2850 reached IVR for a company called Optus. Don't pick up unknown numbers and block them. Based on previous comments here it seems a wise thing to do. have had 10 + missed calls from this number when i tried to call is back it got a disconnected number, have now blocked the 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" Missed call and based on this website, I won't be calling back

Pre-recorded message advising on suspended TFN, very threatening tone. It's a known scam...
