Caller: Scammer claiming to be AGL Electricity
I received one text to remind me of a due electricity account (after already paying). I confirmed with my provider that it was a scam. Now I have received an overdue account reminder that gives this number to call (as well as the dodgy web link). IGNORE!!!!!!
Caller: Overseas number claiming to be from AGL.
Scammer claiming to be from AGL left a message on the answering machine asking me to ring 1300 657 452. They used my full name in the message. I did not ring the number as it does not match the number on my bill. Obviously this scam is still going.
Left a voice message saying my real name to On my landline phone to call urgent
I did call (Engaged signal )as I had paid the bill 2 days late as my husband recently passed away
I’m so sick of these scammers taking advantage of people when they are at their most vulnerable !!
i received a scam sms purporting to be from AGL with whom I do not have an
account and that number 1300 657 452 is not listed on AGL website!
Caller: Text message from 1300 657 452
This number is definitely a spam. My house isn't even finished and have some work to do before I can live in it, such as power being connected up (can't turn on any lights, lamps, all electrical equipment)! And no work has been done on my house over the past couple of months, as I'm planning to pay off a couple of bills first, before continuing with the project. They are out to get your money! Don't ring back!
scam. SMS a large bill, not the forst time either. Got my name wrong. Also.sent a web link that I looked out out of curiosity. It goes straight to a payment page for the amount listed and asking for your credit card. Don't pay!!!!! Caller: 1300 657 452
Just IGNORE this call, don't even try to ring back, they want to have access to our credit card or debit card. SCAM, absurd!
Received sms message stating that that my latest instalment had not been received and to ring 1300 657 452 to discuss options. I rang back to an automated recorded message that sounds like AGL, my full name was on the recorded message. Press option 1 if you have paid or option 2 to make a payment. I pressed option1. I have now since discovered that this 1300 number is not a legitimate AGL number. Caller: Claimed to be AGL
Received anon message to answering service 15 Dec 2020. Had my correct name.
Number left does not coincide with AGL. Number given was 1300 657 452
Did not return call
Similar story to many above. Call from AGL and call back on 1300 657 452. Thank you for everyone reporting this SCAM and stopping me from calling it. Just had a no caller ID call me 4 times today the 4th time they said it was AGL and an urgent call then said my partners name in full and to ring the 1300 657 452. We don’t have an AGL account. I got all of above plus (a few weeks later) an additional charge on my phone bill for enhanced SMS. I dont know what it is but definatly stay away from that number !!! I have an agl account and got a recorded message supposedly from agl that used my name saying to call their fully automated service 1300 657 452 immediately. I rang agl on their direct number to confirm there was no real problem. Definitely a scam caller just had a recorded message purporting to be from AGL to ring 1300 657 452, on my answering machine. Do not have an account with AGL. Another scam caller. This is a text I recieved today.
Reminder from AGL. We notice we have not received your latest instalment. Please pay or call 1300 657 452 to discuss your options. Ref# is 630266459035934673
They rang and left a recorded message on my land line - silent number- asking me to call them about my account. My name was said and I am not the account holder.
Just got a new sim card and within 4 hours got a message from (allegedly) AGL saying I owe $939.57. Not an AGL client. Checked the 1300 number through this page, as I though, a scam! Caller: It looks like this is AGL's number
I spoke with someone there to pay an outstanding bill and they had information about our service that seemed legit.
Caller: They're still at it, it seems!
I don't understand how the government hasn't shut this down as this number seems to still be scamming people as a fake AGL call!
I received a text message saying AGL had not received my payment as I pay my bill fortnightly and I am $300 + in advance. this is a total scam
