BEWARE : AGL Electricity Bill Scam

Looks like the online scammers are now trying it on, with the electricity billing system here in Australia! 

You need to be aware if you are an AGL client, there is a scam going around asking for payment of fake electricity bills. 

A few basics will show you the email is a scam, these being:

  • The sender of the email is not AGL
  • Hovering over any links with your mouse, will clearly show you a non AGL address. In our case a Russian based link

The best thing to do in all cases if you are not sure, is simply DELETE the email.

AGL are aware of the SPOOF and advise you HERE dated 1st June 2016 on what to do.

See the report via The Herald Sun HERE with a clear example of what the email looks like.
