Identity Theft

Identity theft describes the act of stealing and using another person's identity in order to obtain a dishonest benefit or avoid a financial liability. Identity theft usually occurs after a person's identity documentation has been lost or stolen.

If you feel you have been a victim of identity theft and/or are disputing an Optus account or Optus service which may have been wrongly created in your name then you will need to contact us immediately to have this investigated.

So that we can investigate your matter, you'll need to complete a Statutory Declaration detailing your concerns. Click on the link below to download a form, or you can also obtain one through your local Post Office or newsagent.
