    Well, I’m ignoring as I’m not with Origin. Smelling a scam. Please beware!

    In my case it was a legitimate reminder that a bill for an account I hold with Origin is due in 5 days and I hadn't yet paid it. Not a scam in my case, just a reminder.

    I got a text message from this number saying hi just letting you know your Origin electricity bill has been emailed. Not in your inbox check your junk/spam folder - thanks Origin. I did not reply but checked with this number first. It is not the way Origin sends their bill. BEWARE

    I received an SMS confirming a bill had been sent to my email. I actually got the bill which I was already expecting anyway, by email the night before. I just deleted the text message. I always login to my account before opening any attachments just to be sure

    Received multiple texts about a bill due, and to check junk mail. Then another one today re the amount owing. Logged in to origin and checked, the amount due was correct. Will not pay by link though as many have said this is a scam…? Will be paying directly through origin account

    Likely scam. I've received the identical message from this number, with the wrong account number and a bill that I don't owe.

    These scammers have been annoying me by phone calls and text messages for some time. I spoke to them weeks ago & then realised after checking my bills that I didn't owe Origin anything!! They call and still send me messages and I don't answer. BEWARE PEOPLE OF THESE NUMBERS......(02) 8318 8102, 0480 018 505 & (02) 7228 6312

    Caller: Origin

    I received an SMS confirming a bill had been sent to my email. Checked my email and there was a letter with a bill attachment from "hello @ origin.com.au".
    I phoned their Help line number (from a previous bill) and they confirmed their email address and the attached bill.
    They have recently made changes to their billing system. Seems legit but if in doubt, give them a call.
