Anyone else getting charged 9.99 a week by The Mia Sphere scam! Nearly 100 dollars in total? Optus through chat, promised to fix, but I got charged 9.99 again. The number Optus gave me didn’t work. Called Optus and selected call back. Informed 10 minutes, got a call 1 hour later, optus staff member hung up before we spoke. Worried I keep getting this charge and can’t fix it. Any ideas?
Try the search again (Perhaps filter it to posts in the last month or two) There must be hundreds of posts on the topic
Most with follow ups on how best to ensure it won't happen again and how to get your money refunded. You'll also note why Optus stopping future scam amounts won't affect your existing 'subscriptions'. The time delay in noticing the scams (a few months?) means getting refunds for the older ones may not be straight forward (which is why you we're probably asked to contact the scammers directly). Any that are on your current bill can usually be easily reversed on request.
Note that you're asking Optus for a favour to get them to sort it out for you.
