They ring constantly and never leave a message. I can only presume they are telemarketers or scammers Caller: Jatesh
He said he was from Optus, and would like to offer me 30% off my bill for the next three months on phone + internet due to COVID. Asked for my DOB, I asked for his name and position in Optus because I said I'd like to ensure it wasn't a scam first. He got defensive and said "WHO told you it was a scam?!" I said nobody, but that I don't give my personal details over the phone without confirming who I am giving them too, and that I'd like to call Optus then call him back. He sarcastically said "Fine then, do that." Then hung up on me. I called Optus and they confirmed they were offering no such deal, and that anything like that would be listed on their website. SCAM DO NOT TRUST THESE LOUSY PEOPL!!
These guys are calling and offering a 50% discount on your utility bills. Please DO NOT fall into their trap. They will first pay your bill and show you the paid screenshot. They will then ask you to deposit 50% of your bill into their account. Once you pay them, they will cancel their payment to whatever utility bill you asked them to pay. After that, you will be left with an unpaid bill and 50% of your bill gone towards them. These are SCAMMERS. Here's an article about them:
Now they are operating as Discount Zone. They have a website and it's fake.

they called me pretending to be Optus. they used this platform to say that I get a new iPhone for 50 dollars including the monthly plan. so basically I get a new phone. they say that in order to proceed with the order I have to give them the date of birth and other confirmation information such as your service number. they have name name from the moment they call they. Further they also managed to change contact email though a message code which Optus gave me. after that they used to code to reset my email details and managed to place and incomplete order. They presumably want to order a phone and send it to their address
I called back number (03) 9108 7728 reached voice mail but did not say for what company. Indian who claimed to be from Telstra wanted my DOB. Scam. Caller: Scammers
Fishing for name, email, date of birth and other data pretending to be with Telstra.
Claiming to be Vodafone and said they’re doing a “promotion” and that because my number is with Vodafone, I’ve won a free iPhone 12 with free shipping. They can’t even scam properly LOL. I didn't answer and rejected the call as the number was from another state. Immediately I saw two Private Call attempts which my phone auto rejected.
Not giving up they tried again the next second with a bizzare number so I answered to humour them.
The caller claims to be from Vodafone and wanted to give me a free phone if I did x,y and z.

Thanks everyone it didn’t ring, thank god. I didn’t answer. But lucky I checked this out. Blocked the number. Set the contact as “scammers” lol
I have blocked this phone number on my mobile phone, ... but I am still getting notifications that they are trying to ring me. 4 times in the past 3 days! Sick of answering these calls from the scammers, so blocking was the best option! Not interested in answering unknown numbers. As by all the other comments, this number is scammers.
Don't trust any unknown numbers now.
