    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 on live chat. After finishing live chat this number called me twice and I rejected the calls. The third time I answered and the person on the other end didn't say anything just could here typing on a keyboard. I hung up and blocked the number.

    Long story short. Got a call from this number (02) 8049 2850) after an Optus live chat (the live chat was successful so I didn't actually need a follow-up call - first warning sign). After getting suspicious, I told them I'd ring Optus back, and I did.
    According to the Optus salesperson I rang, apparently it's a legit Optus customer's number, but the Optus salesperson I had called had no idea why I would get a call from that number.
    End result: The salesperson said they'd put a note/warning on that account, and they said I'd be fine to blacklist/block this number on my phone. So, seems pretty "Not Really Optus" to me.

    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.

    Legitimate call from Optus.

    Calls from this number are usually regarding some kind of action request on your account. The call I received was in response to a complaint I submitted online the day before.

    Got a call and no one answered. I hung up and when I wanted to dial out the other end was still connected.Finally they hung up. I Dialled *69 call and got the number and pressed 1, then got a message "Optus regrets that the number you have called has been disconnected." Really, who are they and how are they able to ring a private number?

    No, doubt it is legit. Says from Optus but check on other Reverse Call websites and see the other so called reasons they call.

    Someone is trying to port our number from Optus, which has lead us to the TIO, as OPTUS won't tell us who it is. We have been given a "temporary number"which has been with us for over 3 months. Even the TIO is being mucked about by them. It started after this number called us. What the hell is going on?
