I got a message saying it was from nib instead, but same thing with the $1000 win if you give feedback. It’s freaking annoying! I received a text message from "Bupa" saying I would have a chance to win $1000 if I told them about my recent healthcare visit. I rang Bupa, who confirmed they do use Whitecoat, who I subsequently googled, but that this text is definitely a scam. Whatever you do, don't try and opt out by contacting the above number; at best you'll suddenly start being charged every month for a premium service and at worst, who knows???? This scam is similar to current ones going around from Coles and Woolworths where scammers pretend to be from these legitimate organisations. Be really careful peeps, even if you regularly use or deal with these organisations. Fk me dead I'm sick of these scammer a**holes! I got similar message from Bupa winning $1,000 which I ignored and recently got another one offering $5,000 mentioned Whitecoat. Caller: Two of us who claimed on Bupa on Monday got this same message from Whitecoat...
...visit for a chance to win $1,000
I've blocked the number
SCAM Caller: whitecoat
I use HBF as my healthcare provider and they confirm its a legit website. They are teaming up with NIB and Bupa to review ancillary services
I still didn't ask for this or give them permission so blocked them.
Getting the message about win $1000 from BUPA every couple of days, but at 9:40pm then 3:20am. Very annoying, I assume it's a scam.

Saying it is from BUPA to win $1000. Scamming b*stards
Mine said HBF. The link (whitecoat.co) is an insecure web address that is a copy of whitecoat.com.au I can't tell who actually sent this sms. It says BUPA but there is no number attached. All legit sms messages have a number in the View Details part of the sms. It looks like a scam. Bupa would never send an sms message like this. I can't figure out why the spammers would send this to me. I suspect this is a scam on HBF Health Insurance customers.
