its a scam..the proof is that they never mention your name in the SMS and thats because they dont know it , and you never got a letter in the mail box from origin with that exact amount that they mentioned in sms, and you also most likely dont even have a origin account anyway lol . its a random attack
block number its a scam 100 percent
Caller: Unidentified female
SMS message stating an Origin Bill, that was overdue but was paid yesterday.
This follows two phone calls earlier in the day, quoting the correct name and address, and asking me to press '1'. I hung up both times, and rang Origin on the number on my bill, who advised (1) my bill has been paid, (2) there were no notes on the account file about anyone calling me, and (3) the number that called me is not one of their's.
This is a scam by getting users pay an origin bill through the link provided. this is origin energy and all payment to this number has been relected in my origin bills via post. scam. scam. scam. fake call from Origin. Not my account. Don't have one!!!! Caller: Scammers
Received a couple of messages from this mobile. "Hi, it's Origin. You've got an overdue balance on you electricity account..." Then a random numbers. Not even my account. Scammers. a**holes.
Caller: Scam Don’t reply
Called with block numbers many times. Said from Origins. I never have any account with Origins. It is a scam. Also, sent me with text said I owed $146.90 hot water account with mobile number 0429 041 444. I have called the Origins just in case someone use my is to sign up but no. I don’t have any account with Origins. Don’t reply or click on link. Report to police if you are disturbed.
SMS - Called up origin to double check this SMS, this is in fact legitimate. Other companies pop up with the actual name in SMS, they should do the same.
Scam. Not with Origin energy. Never have been. Said I owe $1xx. That guy saying it is not scam is probably the scammer or had been scammed Caller: Scammerr
Message claiming to be from origin but on a phone number I only activated 2 days ago and have shared with no one ( so Optus call centre ..how did they get this number ??? ).
Wrong account number and a dodgy web address where they want me to go and pay.
Sent details to Origin and to ACORN.
i get message from them every week, i dont have origin account. think its a scam, not calling or clicking on link incase of virus I HAVE RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM THIS NUMBER SAID THAT I AM OWNING 37.XX, PLEASE PAY TO XXXXXXX OR ONLINE ORIGIN.COM.AU.XXXXX
DEFINITELY FAKE. IF IT`S ORIGIN, THAN IT SHOULD BE ORIGIN ENERGY.
Origin Energy account correspondence. Not spam.
