claimed to be All energy who I have account with however they were asking too many questions as to my details so I told them If they don't have these details they are not who they say they are and hung up. They keep ringing and asking for personal details, I ended up telling them to get f***ed. Missed a call from this number seemed abit suspicious, did some research mostly from reverse Australia and can indeed confirm this is a scamming company claiming to be AGL.
Blocked there number and have been getting constant voicemails being left by this so called company.
You shouldn't hang up on these idiots. Play along and waste their time that is the way to stop them. I spent almost 20 minutes this morning having the time of my life. A week ago I had an Insurance Company scammer call talking about car accidents. After I told him that we had 15 people in the car during the accident who got very excited. Don't they realise that their accents give them away? Call from (03) 8613 9206 today July 4th 2017. Firstly a short, suspicious pause before a pseudo Philipno 'lady' said she was from ASIO (it could have been AGL) and asked me if I was ++++++. I hung up. I have received no further calls. AGL "survey", asking too many questions about me, I said you have my details, I'm with AGL, why do I have to give then to you AGAIN, said was for secrutiy purposes, SO i also asked a lot of questions of them "for security reasons".... so they hung up. Had 3 missed calls from (03) 8613 9206 finally answered they claimed to be from AGL and wanted me to confirm personal details - SCAM Yes been getting these calls for a while now. Home phone & mobile. I rang number & very quickly a voice claiming to be from AGL was there. Dead giveaway as a scam call A woman named 'Mary" claimed she was from AGL & wanted me to confirm my address, she told me my suburb, my name & my phone number. I didn't give her anything & wanted a number I could call back, as 'Mary' said she had better offers to give me & that was the point of her call. 'Mary' wanted to know my street & number & I asked 'Mary' to tell me my address & I would confirm it then, but she didn't.
I phoned AGL on 131245 & they had no record of calling me today, but I did get another 2% off my electricity account which I greatly appreciated. AGL also said it could have been a call from a 'Broker'.
This number Called yesterday and today ...I will not give out my private details over the phone. If AGL - they should know all of my details. Same questions as above - knew my name and that I was with AGL but not my street or house number, wanted me to confirm that and my day and month of birth as they had the year.
I challenged, he got frustrated, I asked for a link to where I could make these cryptic savings he had promised. I know I’m on the best deal and I’m happy and I told him. He says do you shop At Woolworths or Coles... I said Mate, I think everyone in Australia does. Back to the date of birth and street name/number lol! I said send me a link to my email and I’ll call you back! No go he wouldn’t budge.
Wasted a bit of his time.
Yes same with me, they call and call and its always the same questions This is AGL energy sales team calling to offer a better deal They have called twice but i couldn't answer at the time but as it comes up a Melbourne number and I don't know anyone from there did not bother to call back. I got a call just now saying they were AGL. It's legit.
I didn't give out any info, they knew my details. They told me what plan I was on & that it was the best one. They asked if I wanted to link my FlyBuys card & said I could call up AGL customer service or link my card online if I didn't feel comfortable giving him my details. His name was Harold & said he is in the Phillipines & works in the call centre for AGL.
It's a legit phone call.
If you use "Mr Number" a phone/call blocker App you won't have to put up with the calls, I blocked them ages ago legitimate AGL call This is legit agl. Just got an email confirmation of the call + URL checks out THIS IS NOT AGL.
Asked to confirm my address. Asked if I wanted to sign up for savings. Later asked if I wanted to donate to a Forrest Protection NGO.
Don't trust anyone who asks for payment details unless you know the number for sure.
