I had logged a faulty line with Optus a few days earlier and they called me to say it had been fixed. Was legit. I called back number (02) 8049 6150 rang 4 times then goes to busy tone. Its optus
Nothing dodgy about it
This number now belongs to the Optus Pre Activation team. You can't call inbound to this number but customer service calls are made to people who are waiting for their Optus service (such as ADSL) to be connected It's Optus Tech Support - don't believe all the paranoia and conspiracy theories written here........ The caller rang from (02) 8049 8945- knew my first name then wanted me to confirm & provide further personal info. When I asked who this was- said from Virgin (who do use Optus telco) & were calling me to.. I cut this person off & said if you are from where you say I will find you on Google now- line went dead then sounded like underwater? Then called back on (02) 8049 6150 - I did not pick up - BE CAREFUL! I am currently within a 3 year saga of being hacked, stalked etc & this was yet another call that just did not make sense other than to extract personal information!! - which if it was legit they would have this!! We had 3 calls from this number within 2 minutes, one to our landline and two to our mobiles. All three hung up when the phones were answered. Optus technical support. Legit number, we've had a problem and this was the follow up call. optus Optus tech support called me back using this number after I got cut off - legit Optus rang me back on this number to check-up on our home internet as we had called earlier to report slow internet. Legit Optus tech assistant Received a call on my mobile last night at 1.05am. I am not an optus customer nor have I ever been one. I have been on hold with customer service for over 10min so far to ask why they would call at that time of night Optus Tech Support optus support I've had 3 calls in last 2 weeks from this number wanting me to confirm that I want to transfer my phone account to Optus - No request was ever made by me. Information obtained from them is the callers name is Priyanka and her supervisors name is Dinesh Hirani. Informed them that I was to contact the TIO about their scam calls. It's Optus calling back if you e reported a fault with them or already have a service with them. Why are you ppl so stupid saying it's a scam lol omg so many paranoid ppl around here Piscataway Optus Support helping me fix the phone line I called Optus directly 131344 ... this is them calling back as requested ... to fix my landline. (they organised a telstra techie appointment to fix)
Better to pick up if able to check this site fast... impossible to contact back as it goes to their call centre.
