Virgin support asking if I'm happy with my upgrades. I called back number (02) 8049 8945 reached IVR for a company called Optus. had a call from this number this afternoon.
Answers it, and, hangs up.
As it turns out, it is an Optus number, because on call back, it gives various Optus numbers to contact.
And, I am not an Optus customer, so, why they call is a mystery.
they called me today, i blocked them Called me twice - optus wanting to sell me something Caller: Optus
Ring about switching my virgin service to optus, seemed relatively legit but have no idea these days.
Caller: Said they were Optus
Do not give out any details. Sounds super legit but it’s not. I called Optus and they knew nothing about this number.
Probs was Optus calling about the Virgin mobile takeover - all Virgin customers notified Based on comments here, I blocked the number They just called me I have received a missed call from this number every day this week between 11am and 2pm, however they never leave a message. Not a good sign. I am going to continue to ignore calls from this number. Caller: Optus
Optus calling about my service. Ignore.
I got a call today and didn't pick up thanks to this site, however
a few minutes later they called through to my laptop via the FaceTime app!!
Definitely a scam and scary aswel!
This number is still doing the rounds. Smells Phishy?! Claim to be Optus, calling about the changeover from virgin. I keep telling her virgin said I didn't have to do anything and that something smelled fishy. She then asked me to complete my date of birth, so i didn't go any further. Also there was a sort of click/ recording sound when i answered so that was kind of a giveaway.
When she called another time last month, wouldn't accept that I couldn't talk right now and could she call back later. Not a good sign... should have blocked the number the first time. Also always rings in the evening.
Optus Number - calling to discuss transfer from Virgin to Optus. Call back and you are directed to contact Customer Service on 13 39 37
nice move Caller: It's a scam.
Claims to be from optus. They're not. Block then and move on.
has called me 3 times in the past week. haven't picked it up but have called back. says it was optus. thinking of blocking the number Blocked them
