Re: Unauthorised Port Out (twice in 4 weeks!)


I got unauthorized portout thrice in two months, this is becoming a really big issue in Australia. The last happened just 6 hrs ago.

Even after setting up the PIN with optus the hackers were easily able to port the number out.

Bank details and $$were gone, I will dispute it tomorrow.


Why doesn't optus and australian telcos adopt a simliar policy and checks as the US telcos.


Why is porting the number so easy even after setting up the PIN, if the hacker is calling vodafone  to port the number the PIN should be shared with all the telcos, I am seriously considering of switching from optus as it is becoming too much and no body seems to be doing anything about this
