They call claiming to be Optus. They said I was over my data allowance and wanted to know why and what I was doing to make it go over. I said I didn't want to discuss it and hung up. I called Optus straight back and asked if I was over my data allowance. They said I was no where near it. So it was a dodgy call! Lucky I twigged early and hung up on them. I had calls for weeks. lizz - you can get them to sto calling you by calling back that number - you get the option of taking your number off the list I was receiving daily calls from (03) 0990 6626 which I did not answer, now I am receiving daily calls form (03) 9982 8800 and have been on the Do Not Call list for 2 years. Will report the number to Optus. Please do not answer this call. bloody basterds. Keep calling ... dont answer this one or if u do tell them to get f***** Claim to be running a promotion for Virgin Mobile .. asked to verify surname, address, then asked for account PIN ... are you serious? Idiots bunch of idiots. They called and asked for Teresa when if they took 2 seconds to read the screen carefully they would see my name is Therese (no A)! So I told them they had the wrong number :-) Have been getting calls from 9009-6650 and ignoring them, now its 9982-8804 - so they're also using different last numbers so they don't look like a generic 6600/8800 number - never leaving a message is a sure sign. I'm on the Do Not call register but am an Optus customer so am stuck with it I guess. Daniel - Who do you report this number to? It's OCIS calling on behalf of Optus asking about your mobile and internet contracts. have also had continue phone calls from this number and i rang back the first and it said disconnected... not answering it I was getting (and ignoring) calls from (03) 9009 6600 for 10 days and now, suddenly, from (03) 9982 8800! so glad i ignored it and googled the numbers. Would like to know how to stop it but am not ever answering either of those numbers. I have recently canccelled all services from optus and they keep trying to call if you call from land line it says its a sale service call from mobiel it says disconted its just total crap and a joke they are a bunch of hairy c*nts I dont want to give out my date of birth to a company that is not actually Optus; it appears they have sub-contracted this out. Boy am I sick of Optus or whoever they have contracted their telemarketing crap out to. Had about 4 calls the last 2 days! Poor effort by Optus and they will lose business from this pushy conduct. They say calling on behalf of Virgin mobile and trying to offer free wifi modem. Also trying to ask for my Account PIN or Date of birth .. told them to shove it bullsh*t calls like this make me want to stop using optus, i just dont answer, and if I do answer (iphone if its locked you cant disconnect) i just hang up right away. i'm listing it in my phone as don't answer. for the next time it rings.
i reconmend this to everyone
