    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.

    Been getting calls from this number of the past few days. They are a call centre representing AGL. First time I answered, I told them I wasn't interested. Second time I answered, they tried to get me to "verify my personal details" before talking to me... I told them I wasn't going to provide a stranger my personal details over the phone. So instead, they read out my year of birth to confirm they knew me. Again, I told them I wasn't interested and told them to stop contacting me.

    Since then, they've tried to contact me 3-4 times in the past 2 days. My number is registered on the "Do Not Call" list, so I've lodged a complaint with ACMA.

    IMHO, these guys are legit. But telemarketing is still a sh*tty practice, particularly if you've already opted out. Please don't just block them -- make a complaint to ACMA. The only way companies like AGL learn is if they get a fine. You've got to hurt them in the hip pocket.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Unsolicited call
    Australia
    Call answered and no body spoke. There was no noise what so ever so figuring an overseas call centre with a multiple number dial and first to answer looses and gets the caller. Comes after a few days of private number calls with the same thing.

    Appears on my phone as Melbourne VIC. Said they were AGL, check if I was happy with their service, asked me to verify my details so I think perhaps it's a scammer.
    Persistently called over the last couple of weeks. don't leave VM, nor a number to call back. After I didn't pick up calls from this number for a while, another number from Melbourne VIC started (03) 8498 5689, when you try to call it it says it's disconnected.

    They called me ans had my name then as others have said, try to say from AGL and wanting to see if I'm getting the most from them. Then they ask for my details! Hang up straight away. In this age of scams, even if they are legit, AGL should try a better method than this. There was also a delay at the start which also makes it seem dodgy. How about at least an Australian call center to try your scams :p

    The posts on this number say it is AGL. It probably is as I just got a letter from AGL telling me how I could save money with them if i add gas to an electricity account. Who needs hassling by callers - not me. So thanks to your site and the postings on it I know who called and I've added them to my Black List. I use Extreme Call Blocker it is brilliant.

    They have called me from this same number 5 times this week. First call was asking me to hold on while the call is connected. I didn't. Other times as soon as I get the 'pause' I hang up.
    Today I didn't even answer the call but now after seeing this, I'll need to try to block the number.
