  • Free SIM Cards has an ABN, 35 620 794 096 which it shares with Sim Planet. Sim Planet is a stall at Sydney Airport. Possibly why the addresses are similar.

  • Given people have received their cards from previous deals, there is no issue of receiving the product especially when it is free. Free Sims Received: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6

  • Allegations of releasing information to 3rd parties? Well, while concerning, that's something a lot of sites do including cashback sites, freebies, comps posted here so it's up to you to protect your information.

          OzB makes a (profanity) killing off affiliate linking, I would assume. Everytime you go to amazon from here for a deal, OzB gets a cut from everything you buy for the next 24hours on amazon. (etc, cookie based)

          •  

            @dfaktz: How would they when you use shopback or cashrewards?

            I dont know if they do that when you're logged in. And even if they do, what's the problem? It doesn't cost you more.

            •  

              @nerd1: There's no problem, did I say there was?
              It doesn't need you to be logged in on EITHER site to work and will go through most adblock/scriptblocking software as its a basic cookie.
              CR and SB would have separate deals.

            Incorrect. Links for members are direct. No affiliate links. Affiliate Links on OzBargain

            •  

              @neil: Why don't you cash in on this?! Its so passive, I fully support it, lol.

              • @dfaktz:

                How does OzBargain decide which links are affiliate links?
                Again, if you are a logged in user, all out-bound links will be direct links without bouncing to affiliate networks. For OzBargain users/members we would recommend using Cashrewards or ShopBack to get the commission rebated back to you.

                We want the community to save the maximum amount of money. If a store has an affiliate program, then likely it will be part of a cashback site.

                • -1 vote

                  @neil: Never thought about that.. very fair call.
                  I.. wonder if these savings DO get passed on though, highly doubtful, one can hope :)

                •  

                  @neil: While that's thoughtful, I think the true winners are the stores in this case as they save on the cashback.

                  Here's the most likely scenario when a user is interested in a deal:
                  - Savvy users: Go to Cashrewards/Shopback to find the store, then search for the item and buy the item. User/CR/SB earn the cashback.
                  - Forgetful users or non-savvy users: Click on the link directly and buy the item. No-one earns the cashback. Store saves money.

                  In the second case, the user loses out anyway. Might as well give the cashback to OzBargain. As a user, I would not think this is wrong.

          Well, precisely. Since we don't pay for Ozbargain, we're the product. The site is monetised through different avenues; there's advertisements/marketing, sponsored posts, affiliate/referrals, all our activity increases the value of the site, the domain name, the brand, the appeal from clients etc. That's how it works.

          Fortunately, the site doesn't have any of my personal identifying contact details to sell on, like this "free sim" does.

    •  

      Like any number in Australia/the world?

      • +2 votes

        Phone spamming is not unusual but its timing was suspicious. The new free sim got spammed 1 day after activation and I didn’t give the number to anyone that quickly. Hope it was just bad luck from my end!

        •  

          That makes sense. Yeah that's not random. If it's straight up after activation.

          •  

            @Topdog: They don't know the mobile number. It's uniquely generated by the mobile provider online. Only VF and Telstra print the numbers. Optus does not. So very hard to say for this…

        •  

          There is no substantial evidence that they're selling your info. Your scenario/case.
          Free sim got spammed calls. But they do NOT know the mobile number for the sim they give out considering it is NOT printed on the sim pack. It is ONLY given to you during the online activation progress. So how?

          •  

            @hex7272: It's a Lebara sim, the number has been set and printed on the pack.

            • +1 vote

              @Newgod: Get the Optus ones. No number on pack. Or when activating sim, request to get a different number.

              •  

                @hex7272: Thanks for the advice, I'll keep that in mind. It's safe based on your Optus experience but for other sims we still need to admit the potential risk. If there's no risk then we would not have to enter false info and change the number.

                • +1 vote

                  @Newgod: Another way would be to get a free sim elsewhere/ the Optus and use that number to transfer to the provider you want.

                  •  

                    @hex7272: Good idea, I'll stick to Optus from now on. Do you know if a number under spam attack, is there any way to keep that number and eradicate the spam? I think porting out can't help.

                    •  

                      @Newgod: No, no options exist. How important is that number? Almost nothing you can do once your number is spammed. Get a new number if it's not important. I've put in my real number and have not been spammed attacked.

                      •  

                        @hex7272: It's the number my late partner picked for me with her explanation for each number of the series… It has so much meaning that I want to cherish as a memento. Sometimes I believe that she might call me via this number. You might laugh at my illusion but sadly I can't get rid of it.

  •  

    Perfect timing. I need a disposable SIM to activate the free 2 Month Kayo VB & Carlton promo deal. Current 2 month one expires 27th May and have a few extra found codes. Shall use junk email address here to save the spams. Thanks OP.

    •  

      Use a junk phone number most importantly. Notice how the rep didnt care before about extra cards.

    •  

      do you have spare code by anychance thank you

      •  

        If you mean OTP it means one time password and he would also need to supply you with the email.

        Protonmail can be used for "good" throwaway emails.

    Doesn't even need OTP now… After 30 mins of submitting my order with valid postal details, albeit burner email, still no confirmation! This is dodgy as sht…

    Dodgy as hell… Validated by submitting multiple random emails to create new bogus orders… This rep/site/company should be banned from OzB!

    I'd encourage others to submit bogus orders using random emails such as [email protected], as the order is submitted successfully, as follows:

    Thank You!.

    Please check your email for further instructions

    •  

      Sadly this is pointless as they will use a databasing system to clear through the trash. They've had methods to clear through this type of shit for decades.
      Best thing to do is to move on or report them.

    •  

      I received confirmation email within a min of submitting. I used a Landline number as was not giving out my mobile.

    •  

      Apologies to the OP (Rep)… I receive my free SIM, thank you.

      With all the noise and the issues around OTP, and then when trying again after you saying OTP issue was resolved, to then find OTP was removed altogether it seemed a bit dodgy.

      But again, apologies! I've revoked the neg!

    From its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/freesimcards.com.au/), each of its post has very few likes.

    A lot of them only have one like, and there's that one person who consistently likes each post ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) In the case if it's a scam or a deliberate privacy breach, the law enforcement will know who to look for.

      I don't see a problem here, unless you activate the sim through freesimcards.com.au.

      I assume you activate it through optus, so if you are smart, the only correct details freesimcards.com.au would have is your address. And you can use the $2 sim you received from them.

    Just received a scam "Telstra" call less than 12 hours after signing up for this. Something about people using my internet illegally. On contacting the support at the website they immediately stopped talking after I mentioned what had happened. I've never received a scam call on my number (family often do on theirs but I rarely give out my number… Obviously a lapse in concentration last night). Not sure what to do or whether it's just a coincidence. I can't get any details from the support to discuss what has happened. If anyone else gets suspicious calls today please let me know.

    • +2 votes

      I would say coincidence as it's a tad too soon for calls assuming they do pass on your details to scammers which I doubt they will (in my opinion only). This is more about Telco marketing I would think and not scam calls like the one you received?

      •  

        I received another one (scam Amazon call about an $799 iPhone) an hour ago; I've never received scam calls like this before. I'll assume coincidence but I can't think what else would have caused it. Trying not to be paranoid but talk about strange timing nonetheless.
