Said they were from AGL, knew my name, wanted to "make sure I'm getting the most out of their services and offers", or something like that. Maybe legit, but I hung up on them. They called me and ask for my personal information. I got pissed and didn't tell them anything. Then I call AGL and they confirmed that the number is from AGL. I told them this is really bad business practice to call customers and ask them for personal details. Wanted me to CONFIRM PERSONAL DETAILS. I refused and told him he's a scam and I'm calling POLICE. He hung up quick smart. Today 30 Sep 2016. They called sounded like computer talk "there is a call for you, pleas hold the line while we connect you". I just hung up. Obviously some scamming gong on. AGL telemarketers avoid Calls me everyday sometimes 2-3 times. Never leaves a msg. I answered 1st time and they asked for personal details which I wouldn't give. I blocked them. Now they are ringing my work place head office. Head office had to contact me to make me aware of the numerous calls where they would give no information and claim they needed to contact me over a "personal business matter". Also had both my email accounts hacked and had to change bank card as someone attempted to get into my account.
Has been going on for weeks
Do not answer
Got a call from this number today. The lady asked me to clarify myself at first, I rejected. She revealed my year of birth and full address, so got me start talking to her. She mentioned would send me a gift card as a reward for being loyal client to me and want to send me an email for better deal. Not sure whether I would see that email and talk to her the next time someone rings. Said they were from the Australian Tax Office, asian call centre, asking for the old resident by name. Played along for a while, told them I was busy and needed to call them back to get their number, then informed them that the ex-resident died, and I'm actually passing their call centre details on to the local police and interpol. Hope law enforcement do something about these scumbags. These guys have been ringing daily for past week or so now. They never leave a message as I keep ignoring, don't answer. This number has called me seven times over the past few days. 'Rose' claims to be from AGL. I'm pretty sure this is a scam. NOT actually AGL. I called them and they confirmed it was not them who rang. Who the hell called me and why do they know some of my details? Received a call from this number today. It was AGL wanting to make sure I receive all the current benefits on offer from them and also trying to persuade me to change my electricity over to them as I currently only have Gas. Told them no. Telemarketing and persistent. call everyday c Woman called MY mobile and asked for my husband. Said she was from AGL. Wanted to talk about our gas account. Told her we don't have gas account.
Quickly changed her mind and said electricity. I hung up then.
Claimed to be AGL. Wanted me to confirm address to gI've me a better deal. Told them I wasnt comfortable and hung up. Its AGL - they also sent an email as SPAM - I got my work to block them Claim to be AGL but when I called AGL they had no records of anyone trying to call me.
They keep trying every few weeks or so.

I asked what the deal was about Indian fellow said they wante dto make sure i wa getting the best deal and need to verify me. I think this is a scam
