I received an SMS that said
Hi, Origin here. Just a reminder that your next direct debit payment for your electricity account A-3A765D1C will be taken on 01/12/22. Thanks. PS If you have not received your bill, please check your junk/spam folder.

As I have never contacted Origin, I know the SMS is a scam.

I received the "Hi, just letting you know that your Origin electricity bill has now been emailed. Not in your inbox? Please check your/spam folder. Thanks, Origin." SMS from this number. I did get an Origin bill recently so I did a double-take, but why would they be sending me an SMS from a random mobile number.

Marked as spam.

Death To Scammers

Caller: Pretending to be Origin

Spam / Scam pretending to be origin, why does the government allow these numbers to remain active for so long & why do they not trace the criminals that own the number. Someone needs to create an AI that tracks down and publicly identifies the scammers

I asked Origin about this via official means - turns out someone had accidentally added my mobile number to their account, and the SMS was legitimate.

Keep getting texts from origin regarding a overdue bill. I’ve now made contact with origin and asked them to stop selling my personal details or I’ll report them to the authorities.

Exact same message as "F." above. If it's real, I'm not sure why Origin would text me. If it's fake, there's nothing fishy about the text attempting to take my information (no URL, email, etc.).

Seems real, but unnecessary. Best not to engage.

They're still at it!

I received the txt msg below then about an hour later the msg below saying "oops". Blocked it. But why doesn't telstra or the telco just stop this scammer given that they've been using this number to scam people for at least six months?

"Hi, its Origin here. Did you forget about the overdue of $289 for your hot water? That's okay, it's easy to catch up now at http://www.originenergy.com.au/pay using your account ref: A-XXXX. If you're finding it hard to make the payment now, we can also offer a payment plan. You can reply to this message, or call us Monday to Friday on 1300 832 854"

"Hi, its Origin here. Oops, there may have been an error in the last messahe we sent you. Please ignore. - We will send a correct one shortly."

Th spelling of "messahe" gives it away too!
