I just got a text message saying:
*OPTUS MSG* There was a problem processing a recent bill. To avoid termination of this service, please login to My Account: https://yes4opt.us/id/MDQyMzg5MTIzOA=
I've never received any message like this before, and the web link looked suspicious so I didn't click on it. I was going to report this to firstname.lastname@example.org but before I do that I just wanted to make sure it's a scam. Is it a scam?

I would not trust any sms these days (unless its something you request such as the everchanging security pin for MyGov -Medicare, ATO etc)
Logging directly into the Optus website in your account is the best way to see if you had an issue with bill payment.
I apparently won a UK lottery last week as the SMS said I did, dont think ill get my millions though

I would say that it is. Unfortunately, I got this text at almost the same time as yourself. Half-asleep and without my glasses on, I clicked the damn link (not something I'd typically do - I could kick myself!!!) and nothing. When I put my glasses on and saw the link address, I figured it was of the scammy nature. I did check my bank to make sure there was no problem on that end (there wasn't). You were certainly smarter than me this morning!

I received the same message this morning so I would say it’s a scam!

Just got a phone call advising me my internet will be disconnected. Followed optiosn to tech support. Was then I was told my Telstra connection will be disconnected. Not been with Terlstra told then then got abuse for calling them out as scammers. Upset the lady (not sure that is accurate). Made my day
