    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.

    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!!!!!

    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.

    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!

    I spoke with someone there to pay an outstanding bill and they had information about our service that seemed legit.

    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!
