How do I contact optus from overseas?

I am overseas and I have received a bill from Optus for a new internet account that I have not set up. I need to email them or find an online contact point as I do not have phone coverage and as it is not my mistake, I should not be required to make an international call to resolve it. Can someone PLEASE tell me how to actually speak to someone, rather than being pushed in a total loop.

Re: How do I contact optus from overseas?

 

 

I moved overseas from Australia to UK permanently in November 2018 and attempted to pay off and close my account prior to leaving Australia. I subsequently continued to receive bills by email and again phoned from UK in February and requested a pay out fee and paid this immediately in full and was informed by Optus that my account was closed. I was informed this was the final payout and my account was now cleared.

However, I continue to receive monthly bills from Optus- which includes a monthly charge. For services I have not used since November.

Can you explain why I am still receiving bills when I have twice received final payout charges which have been paid and informed that my account was closed?

What Optus services am I still being charged for and why?

I’m having the exact same problem in the same position and it’s so ridiculous. Ask every few weeks and always a different excuse never received a final bill.
