Sending messages Saying they were energy Australia and we needed to pay an excessive amount for a bill.
That we hadn’t received??
Usually they text with the number being the name energy Australia.
Text message and I quote from…
"Valma, a friendly reminder from Energy Australia: Electricity Account (03) 8672 0431 of $261.65 with a pay on time discount of $14.34 is due on 11/02/20. To pay $247.31 (incl.GST) now go to https//p.energyaustralia.com.au/p/F9T40068 If paid recently, thanks and please ignore. To Opt Out, reply STOP."
This is surely a SCAM. Not my account number, nor my Usage from my last Bill.
Caller: Telstra User
I’m trying to investigate this user as I have received multiple sms with an overdue gas and electricity bills. Sent in my new Australian number that I haven’t gave to anyone aside from my husband and two friends. I also don’t f****** use this retailer so I don’t owe them any money. I’ll ring them and also give this phone number to crime stopper. Last time a friend got scammed by Chinese idiots for $80,000 and lucky she got her money back.
A***", a friendly reminder from EnergyAustralia: Gas Account 7797***** of $139.65 with a pay on time discount of $15.11 is due on 17/06/20. To pay $124.54 (incl. GST) now, go to https://p.energyaustralia.com.au/p/J38D7KC0 If paid recently, thanks and please ignore. To Opt Out, reply STOP.
I also got a call claiming my Energy Australia bill was payable and directing me to an online site. Suspected it was a scam, thanks everybody for confirming! Text message received:-
A friendly reminder from Energy Australia: Gas Account XXXX is due on DD/MM/YYYY. To pay $137.79 (incl. GST) go to https://p.energyaustralia.com.au/p/XXXXXX.
Clicking the link takes you to a payment screen asking for credit card details. Do not enter details. Who knows what will happen!
Seems like a scam...
do not phone back as you will probably pay a large premium...

Received txt message supposedly from Energy Australia as a friendly reminder to pay
DO NOT follow link- scam! Rang Energy Australia to report this as my name and account number was correct.
scammers.... BEWARE !!! Caller: Energy Australia???
Seems to be a scam.
Set up Bpay with Energy Australia and pay through your bank app.
You're still getting the discount anyway.
Not sure if this is a scam or not but it's not worth the risk.
beware its a scam Caller: 0439 307 338
