Caller "Optus", but was a woman from India
Offering a 40% discount. I told her it was Direct Debit so they could just go ahead with that. She then asked me for date of birth. I told her it was on record, and if she did not know that, I really did not know who I was talking to, and hung up.
Caller: Telstra rep?
Offering a bill discount. Phone said it was Optus but were asking about Telstra acc. I hung up.
Caller: Indian lady
A lady called advising she was from Optus billing department and she wanted me to give her my date of birth and my 6 digit access code. I asked her what my name was and she couldn't advise this but she had all of my details. SCAM
Reported to be Telsta with a promotion offering 50% discount on my monthly bill. Asked for my date of birth. Caller: Fake "Telstra"
Said they were Telstra and offering a 50% discount, then started asking for my personal details. SCAM!
Had the same called today, same story, she is definitely reading off a script. Said no thank you and hung up. Caller: Supposedly OPTUS.
I received two SMS messages supposedly from OPTUS telling me to ring this number to activate international roaming because according to them I had just activated my phone in China. lolwot? I am not in China. I don't use OPTUS and have never used OPTUS.
Offered a discount from optus. Sounded dodgy. Hopefully they don't hack me! Caller: Just had a call from this number - “Optus”
Tried to offer something from Optus, but could not understand much of what was said
As previous comments....stating that I am entitled to a discount.....SCAM!!!
Caller: Not Really Optus
Caller: Optus - apparently
This also happened to me! Offering a promotion - they hung up after I asked too many questions.
Purporting to be Optus. Scam. Also came through as real Optus numbers but with a 0 at the start.Can show up as Optus on your phone.
An Indian guy called me telling me I could get a 25% Discount if I confirmed my details. I told him to contact my husband who is the primary account holder..then they wanted his details too. I told him if he had my number surely he would have my husband's too.
A woman from India rang to advise that my monthly fee would go down. I’m already sceptical at this stage, so wasn’t really listening. I’ve reported it to Optus, so will wait for reply from them.
