I had logged a faulty line with Optus a few days earlier and they called me to say it had been fixed. Was legit. It's Optus Tech Support - don't believe all the paranoia and conspiracy theories written here........ I called back number (02) 8049 6150 rang 4 times then goes to busy tone. 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!! 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 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 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. 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. This number just called me at 2 in the morning. I thought it was an emergency. Rang 27/11/17 10:53 AM- left message has just static on my answering machine I am also being hacked, stalked. I have an idea who it is but I can't link them with this number. Received a call from this number , shows up as nsw Australia, I asked where are you calling from? He replied ( India) Virgin mobile confirming an online upgrade order. RE; 8049 6150
This number belongs to Optus. If you are waiting on a call back, they will call from this number. If you have been given an extension on a bill, they will call you on the date agreed as the new "payment due date", this is number they will call you from. Anytime Optus Customer Service Officers from call centres need to call you, they will call from this number. You CAN in fact call back using this number. I suggest you call between business hours, AEST.
