Billing scam SMS

Received a scam/phishing SMS today from +***** stating that my account was overdue $10.24.  It didn't say if it was a mobile or internet account.

This is pretty sneaky.  I have reported to the Optus abuse mailbox and to the ACCC scam site, but thought I should post here for users.

The link in the sms was for domain: optusverification.com.au
The link also included my mobile number expressed as /cust?id=61xxxxxxxxx&amount=1024
(where x is my mobile number after the international code)
 
A lookup for optusverification.com.au resolves to: 162.0.233.193
but there is no registration detail, just the IP address, which resolves to <server.dotvibe.io>

Re: Billing scam SMS

That's  part of this Optus phishing nest:

optusverification.com.au
optus-verification.com.au
optus.verifyaccount.com.au
optus-3dsecure.com
conquestevaluate.com
conqutestdrive.cloudns.cl
conquestcontractorsf.com
conquestdrivesf.com
conquestevaluate.com
internationaldrivedc.builders
internationaldrivedc.contractors
isamirotolas.com

Of which Optus is only currently aware of one so far by the looks of it (as only one is being actively blocked).

They all ask for your Optus My Account login details as well as credit card details. They're even nice enough to give you a fake receipt after you've made the payment.
