Hello, I received a message a couple of days ago concerning a Xiomnia subscription I never willingly signed up for. I left it until tomorrow morning and looked up some information about it, realising that it was deemed safe to send 'stop', I did so. I also lowered my spending limit to $0 so this never happens again. My bill has been charged with an extra $9.08 on a subscription that I promise I never agreed to in the first place, and it's causing me a lot of stress. I was wondering if someone could help me by raising a dispute if it's not too much trouble?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
you can actually request optus to raise a complaint for you to the the third party provider, if you can read preivous experience on this forum most of them are getting refunded, you just need to be patient and be carefully next time clicking things online, cheers!
Hi @Mariah_Butler, sorry for the late reply and thanks for reaching out to us as I can appreciate your concerns with regards to the subscription charges. You have done the right thing by changing your spend limit to $0 and sending stop. You can contact the Premium Content provider directly on the number provided on the bill in regards to the refund of the charges. Alternatively we can escalate it from our end for them to contact you if you have done so yet? If you still need help then PM us → here your phone number / account number, full name and date of birth to proceed.
This is horse ****. I got the same thing and im not happy... juwt saw my bill wwnt up by $30 of what its supposed to be.... can some help me out to get this credited
Hello there, my problem had been solved a little while ago, but you can call the third party yourself and get a refund if you never agreed for the subscription. Or you can contact someone in the optus live chat, where they can contact them on your behalf, while also putting your 'spend limit' to zero and block third parties for you, at least this was the outcome I had.
Best of luck and I'm sorry this has happened to you.
You have limited options.
You could phone their customer service branch and spend 30 minutes on hold before speaking to someone in gods know where Asia with no idea or intent on helping you
You can log onto the TIO website and submit a complaint. That's about the only time they listen.
@maria_Butler, glad to hear we managed to resolve this one for you. @bm73, I wouldn't go as far to say that you' options are limited. We have a live chat team who are available to speak with 24/7. We've improved the functionality of our live chat page to get you through to the relevant department with a little more ease → http://www.optus.com.au/shop/notices/service-chat. You'd just need to ask the consultant to action the following:
If you've lurked other similar threads on the forum, you'll see that the majority of customers were able to confirm that their issue was resolved.
