Received call at 5:05pm (5 minutes after office hours), from "Warren at AGL" - said he was looking for my husband, who he called by name. I replied "I'm his wife, how can I help you?". He hung up without saying anything more. This is NOT a usual AGL number.
Everyone needs to be very diligent regarding odd calls, sms & emails at the moment especially when the caller seems to know your proper name & other details, because OPTUS was hacked yesterday & apparently they had heaps of info on people, including past customers who are no longer customers.

Has called me 3 times in the last 3 hours (once every hour) have not answered due to the negative comments on here, they don’t leave a message. I dare say if it was an urgent matter for me personally, they’d learn to leave a message.

It is AGL ringing its customers trying to get them to sign up with AGL internet and AGL mobile.
I had several missed calls and they don't leave a message.
I rang the number back and it is AGL.
no scam, just telemarketing.

They claimed to be from AGL. They knew my name and what products I had with them. They proceeded to try sell me internet and mobile plans. When said not needed they immediately hanged up. I called AGL to check and they had not called me - so scammer. Blocked number.

Got a call from (08) 8299 6139
Before I answered Telstra message on my screen read Suspected Spam call.

Call was stopped by Telstra. I blocked number. Looked it up on here.
Sure enough. Some idiot thinking they're bright.

Ten points to Telstra for stopping call, then updating my phone.

Lessons to learn Optus.

Indian scam!!!!!!!
There is literally a sector of business people/scammers that openly employs people on large scales to commit these acts
Don’t want it to be Indian then India needs to step up and stop it!!!!!!

Caller: AGL

I received a call from AGL to bundle NBN with my electricity and gas. It was a good offer so I did it. Then I checked this forum and thought I had been scammed! But I phoned AGL using a number on their website and it was indeed a genuine call.

Yet the majority of scam calls come from a few regions in India. So seriously, start policing your people better before you start complaining about people calling Indians scammer. I hear Indian accent, I hang up. Rather be labelled a racist than to be scam.

Caller: Not AGL

Had same situation only I verified it was not AGL. It might be a number that is being spoofed? Samsung phone and Telstra both identify it as spam.

Calls eveyday at 1pm even after I blocked the number. Silent calls with no voicemail message just missed call dial 159 to opt out. Called the number back and sounded like AGL but I hung up as I had no cause to need to speak to AGL. I am with optus so Im guessing from the other comments on this site they got my info when optus was hacked
