Re: Spam messages

Its not a virus. Someone (or some PC) is just sending you MMS with dodgy links.

 

Just ignore and or delete them.

Re: Spam messages

As Peter said, ignore them AND NEVER click on a link from an unknown sender because you might activate a virus download.

 

Try downloading a free antivirus program (if you are using an Android phone) from the Playstore.  I use AVG and it works well.

Re: Spam messages

I have received these messages also, but I presumed they were safe as it said they were from Optus so I clicked on it and they keep sending now!

 

I've called Optus about this but they have no idea what I'm talking about.

 

Help.

Hi @Zoe_J, really sorry for the inconvenience caused. Are you able to PM me Here your full name, Optus number & date of birth so we can take a look into this?
