Hey guys, have had $40 charged to my bill for extra service content. Would like to see a detailed list of purchases, any ideas?

Re: Service content

It would seem likely you have been hit by the Premium SMS scam. Have you got any SMS lately about joining a subscription?


If you find so then:


1. Send STOP to any such SMS

2. Ask Optus to set your Monthly Premium SMS limit to $0

3. Ask Optus to refute the charges for you (they a required to)

4. Optus should get no answer to their refute and recredit the amounts to you next bill.

5. Tell Optus to stop enabling (and profiting) off this SMS scam
