It's a con ... they call and hang up. When you return the call you first get a taped message saying it's AGL. Then an overseas call centre asks for your name and address and asks if you're transferring to another power supplier. You say "no". But now they have your name, phone number and address with little or no effort. Block the call on the phone. agl Caller: (03) 8611 5195
This appears to be some sort of information gathering scam, where the caller pretends to be from AGL and gets some name, address and DOB details from you under the pretext of checking a request to take over your services. I got caught because I was actually moving house, so it sounded reasonable, but checking with AGL later, none of the changes discussed had been recorded by AGL. I asked, but AGL's help desk staff also don't seem to know about this. :(.
AGL calling about our account. Not spam. Caller: AGL?

Got a call from (03) 8611 5195, did not answer the call and then placed on mute. No voice from the caller - I guess the comments here are accurate.

They’ve called me twice in a day, I answer and put myself on silent. They hang up after asking me my name. Wow.
Marketing call trying to win me back after switching to a rival supplier.
An Indian guy called me from this number and said he was calling from AGL regarding to our notice to move out. Then he said he need my personal details to verify.I didn't tell him anything but I was fine and no plan to move out. After hanging up, I searched in internet to find out what this number is and found a lot of complains to this number. Caller: AGL Energy
Called multiple times on Friday - each time I called back and told them to stop. They called again today - complaint lodged with ACCC citing 474.17 of the telecommunications act.
Caller: (03) 8611 5195
Recently moved. This number started calling my mobile about a month later. I have never answered but I am sure it's spam as I know no one in Melbourne.
Energy company Supposedly AGL telling me that my connection is still active after I relocated but I can clearly see online that it is no longer active. Highly likely spam Ditto today 7 Feb 2019. Called AGL on their 13 # and they didnt seem to know anything about it. this number called my mobile twice today. I did not answer it and they did not leave a message. I've had this happen before with a different no (02) 9133 5011, several calls over a number of days in September.
