Caller: They said they were from optus
The man said he was from optus but my phone registered the number as suspected spam. I think it was legit but they asked my date of birth and didn't want to give out personal information just in case.
My phone software says this is a registered scam but I think it is a sales call from Optus. The caller did not leave a message. I called the number back and it answers with the automated Optus voice which gives two 13 numbers to call. 13 33 45 and 13 39 37. These appear to be genuine Optus numbers. Serves Optus right for not leaving a message and also for allowing overseas scammers unlimited access to local Optus phone numbers
Caller: Scam Call
They said they were from Optus - they confirmed my name, day and month of birth - and asked for my year of birth - I said I wasnt comfortable with this and they said its fine, and hung up. Believe its a scam call.
Telemarketer scummos The person confirmed my phone and confirmed my DD/MM and asked for my birth year. He said it is for validation purpose to provide you with better OPtus package. I said no that i cannot say my birth year.Phone # (02) 8049 0840 and (02) 8006 1406 Caller: Unknown
Said it was optus, she asked for me by my first name and when I asked what it was regarding she hung up. Phone detected as spam as others have said.
SCAM. They called me, saying they were from Optus. I followed up with Optus after and they said it is not one of their phone numbers. Avoid answering and definitely do not give out any personal information Caller: Optus
They called me 3 times. The first two I didn’t answered (probs within a week time range difference). Answered them earlier since I saw a couple of reviews saying they may be legit optus. He did say it was optus, and he got my full name. He asked if I wanted to have any upgrades with my plan or devices. Still skeptical but I think it may really be optus (?)
said they were from optus trying to tell me I was paying too much for my plan, and then didn't want me to go to the optus shop to discuss or to email me the details.
