I called back the number (03) 8613 9353 and reached vm that said I reached AGL Energy They know my name and keep asking me to confirm my address and other details to confirm my energy bill. I dont want to give any details and they keep saying they just need 2 min to discuss my bill but wont tell me what exactly it is without me confirming my personal information. I checked my AGL account, i dont owe anything..... wth i checked with AGL (using their chat function) and they confiormed that this is NOT their number. Thus this is a SCAM! Caller: AGL
it was AGL. I just don't know why they don't leave you a voice mail saying they called. It's so annoying.
Caller: Apparently agl
Persistent calls from this number without voicemails being left - annoying at best. Concurrently SMS’s from agl telling me by Bill is overdue - first ever overdue bill as I’m in Melbourne in the middle of the stage 4 pandemic restrictions and these Toe Jams persist in harassing me even though I’ve authorised them to do the payment again (their computer isn’t capable apparently of processing that request - advises via sms. Ffs).
Time to switch providers.
Chasing overdue bills, even if you have paid or you have payment plans.
The moment a bill is past due it seems to go to a debt collection team, sometimes outsourced.
They have many different but similar numbers sometimes auto-dialing from outside Australia so the number or caller seems like a scam.
I have had a bill go a few days overdue, then I paid it, but then had their debt collection people calling be 3 times a day for about a week and a half. Was told "Sorry, sometimes there are delays in our records being updated from AGL's.."
Which is why it seems that they outsource some of this...
Rang back. Really rude AGL agent.
Couldn’t be bothered confirming details or getting into call after how rude the were
AGL Chasing money lol Caller: ALG Energy
ALG Energy wanting the account paid
Caller: Claimed to be AGL
Rude woman claimed to be from AGL. Rudely demanded details, I refused,. Said she'd send email to my registered email address, which is pointless as scammers often know this and the name of the intended victim. Very dodgy email arrived with no content except adodgy attached file. She was argumentative and rude. I'm tired of these idiots and their harrassing calls. Not the first time.
Caller: Unknown person , ready to give me there employees number
Keep getting these calls love playing with them , try it as a form of de-stressing, have made up names ready and see how correct their information about you is 😝 🤣
Aggressive Filipino call centre chasing up 2 day overdue AGL account . Why doesn’t AGL not send follow up overdue email ? Time to switch suppliers that can communicate better. It's a scam...
These scammers know that alot of people go away on the xmas/new year holidays and that's also when gas and electrical bills are issued, meaning that by the time people come back home, there's unpaid bills sitting there waiting for them.
Scammers take this opportunity to call people to gather personal details and/or harass them for money due to the high percentage of people who would genuinely be running late on their bills.
The actual utility companies know that people will be late with their bills on the new year, they aren't going to ring millions of customers who are a week or two late on their bills...
my phone rings, i answer it , and they dont reply straight away, sounds like they are calling from an o/s call centra. I said my name 2 times, then i put my phone down and i heard " if you dont speak now i will end the call... by the time i picked the phone up, they hung up. quite annoying. Caller: Tgey said AGL
Insisted on speaking to my wife. We don't have an AGL account. My wife said it is a scam and don't ring back. I am confident that it is a scam seeking personal information.
Aggressive rude scammer. Just had a woman call me saying she was from AGL and had a new plan for me, please provide your details. I asked what this was in regards to what plan she said AGL but could not disclose the details as this was confidential. She said this conversation will be recorded do you consent. I said no.
Very assertive and rude. I just hung up. Be careful everyone its so easy for them to get your details!
Appears to be a scammer who has ongoing access to AGL personal information - they call demanding money when no money is due, and don't have access to current account status. Caller: AGL Collections
Confirmed that this number belongs to the contracted debt collection department ,advised them of the regulations around the volume of calls.Suggest you ask to speak to Resolution Department Manager, and consider moving to another company
Seems AGL need to pay their own bills... couldn’t understand a word coming from them and when they started with having to provide name and DOB that’s a no.
