Been receiving harrassing prank calls from AGL 03 86115185 at my place of business for the last two weeks. We are trying to run a cafe, only to stop and answer the phone and then it hangs up!!!! Call back and it’s AGL. These calls need to stop or we will be taking all our accounts elsewhere!

I'm sorry to hear this!
These calls sound tremendously frustrating. Please send me a private message with your AGL account number and phone number, and I'll arrange for a stop to be put to these calls.
Can you put pe on the do not call list please look at how many calls I get from AGL - I have no outstanding balance nor do I want to keep my accounts with AGL - it’s harassment when your systems auto call you 12-15 times
I'm sorry you've had to get in touch with us under these circumstances!
I'll be happy to offer you a hand here. I'll kindly ask you to send me a quick private message by clicking on my handle (jaydeny) with your AGL account number and address.
What's galling is that these marketing calls from AGL are being made in direct contradiction to Australian law, specifically the Spam Act 2003, which specifies that a company must only use a supplied email address or telephone number for the purpose for which it was supplied. IE, if you didn't provide your phone number to AGL and didn't give your express permission for them to use it to contact you for the specific purpose of receiving marketing, then they have broken the law. They just inferred your permission and the Act says they must not do that.
Next, to stop receiving these unsolicited marketing phone calls, you need to contact AGL and asked to have your email address and / phone number removed from their marketing contact list, when in fact you never asked to be put on the list in the first place or provided any consent for them to do so.
That's like throwing brick though someone's window, then leaving a note "If you want me to stop breaking your window, then you need to call this number and ask me to stop"
