Origin energy Origin Energy retention team. I cancelled my account with them and they try to get you back etc. MAKES SENSE IF IT'S ORIGIN ENERGY, JUST USED I-SELECT TO SWITCH TO AGL. DEAR AS HELL, RUDE AND ARROGANT, TURNED THE POWER OFF WITHOUT CONTACTING ME, AND THE ACCOUNT WAS PAID ANYWAY, THEY BLAMED IT ON THE WRONG ACCOUNT NUMBER. IMBECILES...
COULD ORIGIN BE THE TELSTRA OF THE RETAIL ELECTRICITY INDUSTRY??
I got a call from this number today too I didn't answer it though as I don't answer numbers that I'm not familiar with. They didn't leave a message and when I tried to call back it said User Busy on my phone, beeped a few times and disconnected. It's a scam most likely. Not happy considering that my phone number is on the Do Not Call Register This is an authentic Origin Energy number. Origin called when an unauthorised person tried to change my account to AGL. This call saved me a lot of grief. Lily and Joey should remove their comments. This number got through to me on my mobile. Is Origin Energy trying to stop people who have indicated they are switching power providers. They couldn't be bothered coming up with a competitive deal beforehand, I suppose. its origin energy. Caller: Origin Energy
Called to retain our account - Switching energy to AGL I was irate but I got a higher discount and the usage rate for Origin is lower so its worked out as a decent saving. dont hang up too fast.
Just switched to another electricity provider, Alinta, that buys discounted wholesale power from Queensland Government-owned CS Energy and then passes on the savings - in the order of 20% - to consumers. While we qualified for discounts with Origin, they saw fit not to proactively offer us any, despite us being long-standing customers. Our new supplier warned that Origin would call us back to try to retain our business, but suggested we ask ourselves: Why wasn't Origin trying to help us save money during the years we were customers? Don't companies that are trying to break up the Australian energy oligopoly deserve support? Origin Energy. I am so glad they phoned as AGL was in the process of an unauthorised transfer of my account.
Thank you Origin for following up.
Always miss call, ring 3 times. call back, busy Very specific with wanting to talk to me when my wife answered the phone. When I tried calling constantly engaged. Foreign accent from 03 (Melbourne) If its origin, they don't supply electricity in North Qld so I say SCAM For me it's Origin calling about a solar panel issue, no big deal. They left a message. I don't answer calls from numbers I don't know. The message was in such a thick accent that it was incomprehensible. If this is a legit number, they are doing themselves a disservice. yep same calls 4 times a day, never leaves a message. tried to call back and busy. will block the number Missed call - rang back and busy - text message could not send from my phone to them. Another case of bafoons (look up the definition in Wikipedia) who cannot effectively communicate I received a call from same number and hey said nothing then I tired to call back its was user busy 2 hours straight I blocked the nbwr as well I had one of these missed calls today. no msg left. I see from other posts that these are related to Origin energy. I Recently left Origin so maybe they were just trying to sweeten the deal to get me to return. I couldn't call them back either. Rang but never left message....going on the other comments it would should plausible that it's origin energy as I have changed gas providers from origin to elsewhere
