Bogus Optus call ??

I keep getting phone calls regarding Business Mobile offers from someone who says they are from Optus saying that they have generous new moble deals . I have asked them to send an email to me with the details . She said she will send an email to me but has to have some ID to make sure that the email is being opened by me . She wanted a drivers license number or a passport number . I have told her numerous times that I wont give out that kind of information . She has told me over and over again that it is just for security purposes . Dont want to give that kind of info out . Is this something that Optus would require or ask for ? Or am I just being over cautious ?

Thanks

Never give out personal details to anyone no matter how genuine they sound. If in doubt ring Optus yourself on a number you know belongs to them.

Yes it is likely Optus. A lot of companies in this day and age still ring you up and ask you to identify yourself so they can offer you a deal.

 

However that is not prudent (safe) and you are spot on for saying no.
