optus Caller said they were from NTC and were associated with Optus. Asked me if I was happy with my Optus service, then told me that NBN was available in my area. Asked me how much I was paying and then hung up when I refused to give any personal information. Caller had an Asian accent. Number now blocked. NTC Voice Solutions. Contracted by optus to make their marketing and Spam Calls. They never stop so fight fire with fire. Fill up their voicemail \ answering machine with abuse on 1800 283 174. They also really hate when you waste their time by constantly PM and type messages via their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NTCVoiceSolutions/ short ring then hang up if you answer. typical scammers or cold calling trick to get phone traffic to their number. daily Called me fro few weeks already. Same story. answered today and the guy tried to sell me the story of NTC associated with Optus, asked me for my year of birth.
I said that if Optus needed something they could call me and finished the phone call.
rang 3 days straight just a pain in the backside sigh....also getting daily calls from them - obviously telemarketing so will block too... It's a phishing scam.. ntc optus trying to sell internet packages... they ring to get u to answer using ur name... so they have it and can confirm their data..
They tried to sell me internet packages but when I wouldn't hand over details they said that's fine we have them here.. I still wasn't sure if they were legit so I went with it. They even sent me an Optus link that the internet packages.
Calling me back weeks later to confirm if I was still interested they wanted my year of birth (they had date and month) and my email address...
At this stage I became irrate with them as if Optus hasn't details and they are who they say.. then why don't they know my details..
I've also been receiving calls from unrelated mobile numbers asking me why I hadn't put money in my online account and would I like to do it with my credit card..
But this is all around the same timeline.. & ive been 10 years with no telemarketing issues.
Get a call nearly every day from these people - it comes up Perth Western Australia. Very persistent. I don't answer but will now block after reading these comments I just called Optus and reported it. They looked up the number and it is home number in Perth who happens have an account with Optus as a customer. Optus are alarmed and they have assured me they will escalate this issue to try and shut the scam down. This is NOT OPTUS! This seems to be a phishing and identity theft scam. DO NOT GIVE AWAY DETAILS! persistent short ring hang up calls to encourage call back. Probable sacm Keep calling, I've asked numerous times to be removed from their call list which they agree to and then keep calling. I'm going to report them to the ombudsman in the New Year. So sick of it! On hold to Optus as well, I want to know who gave them my private Optus information. No contract in place agreeing to this. They've been ringing for a few days now. I answer, say "Hello", I don't say my name or anything. Silence. They hang up. optus telemarketing they hand up as soon I pick up so and I block and keep ring over get just done get but I can lol when I see number block lol😂😂😂😂😂🐕🐕🐕 They have been calling me every week day around the same time for 2 weeks. I haven't been answering as I don't recognise the number. I answered once last week and they said it was a courtesy call from Optus. I said I wasn't interested, asked them not to call again but still it continues. They sometimes leave a message on my voicemail but no one speaks, it's just background noise. I will block the number today as I am going overseas and don't want them bothering me there!! They keep ringing me but I've picked up and it was silent. Soon after they hung up. I get these calls regularly at least 2 a day they call and after around 8 or 9 seconds they hang us
