Hi,

 

FYI

I am writing to report of a scam text message I received today 05/12/2022. Stating that my electricity account is in error (overdue).

I know this to be incorrect. For my account is well ahead in credit.

 

Regards

Hi All 👋 

 

Received yet another scam text message from a different mobile number today 😡 

 

To the team at AGL. Is anybody investigating this issue?

 

Regards

I just opened an AGL account and the next day I’ve received a text claiming to be AGL and asking for payment of an overdue amount due today. How did the fact I just opened an account get known online?

Hi there @Deebro, AGL is aware of this scam going around, and have released some information on it here.  Thanks for letting us know, we're currently working on dealing with it!

Thanks Mark
What I’m trying to ascertain is how the phishing party knew I’d just opened
an account with AGL. Also the amount being demanded for payment was
approximately equivalent to the usage to date albeit my AGL account showed
$0 owing.
