Just reviewing my bill for this month (September) and I have three charges from "MIA Sphere Live" and one from "Mooda" on my account. I did not authorize these transactions and don't even know what they are for. Can I please block this charges and have this refunded from my bill? I have been looking other forums and I realized that is a scam so I don't know why it happens and why you are still allowing this platform to bill through the Optus Billing service?
Thank you for your time.
Awaiting your response,
Hey @rickymorlo, these are third-party content providers billed by Optus on behalf of the provider. Sometimes you can inadvertently subscribe to these services by clicking banner ads or downloading certain apps. You can dispute these charges, and also limit your monthly spend to $0 to stop this happening again. This article covers everything you need to know, including how to dispute the charges. If you're having issues however, please reach out and we'll work from there.
Hey @white_rose2607, that seems a bit strange 😕 Have you had any luck on another device? If you're still experiencing issues, send through a private message with the full name, account number and DOB attached to the service and we'll look into sorting this for you.
I have the same issue in November with Mooda and snack games. I'm unsure why Optus or any other Telco would agree to allowing this to happen. They are obviously part of the problem but won't take any accountability for the charges they allow to occur when they know the practises of these so called 3rd parties are not ethical - surely the consumer law act should assist in protecting us against this.
