We take your security and privacy very seriously
We work hard to make AGL safe and secure. Yet, sometimes, suspicious emails – also known as scam alerts, phishing and hoax emails – do pop up appearing to be from AGL. They typically claim that you owe money for an outstanding gas or electricity bill, and ask you to click on a link to view your bill or make a payment.
Get the latest on suspicious emails here, and learn how to report suspicious emails. Remember, AGL will never email you to ask for your personal banking or financial details.

What to do if you get a suspicious email
If you've received an email that looks suspicious, there are things you can do to protect yourself. Above all, please do not open attachments or click on any links in an email you're not sure about.
Then, to help us investigate it, we ask that you attach the suspicious email to a new email (rather than forwarding it). Here's how:
1. Open a new email in your email browser
2. Drag the suspicious email out of your inbox and drop it into the new email (it will become an attachment)
3. Send it to email@example.com with the subject 'Spam'
4. Delete the suspicious email
Once we receive your email, we will review it, confirm if it is unsafe spam and get in touch if we need any more information.
What to do if you're a victim of fraud
If you've provided your details by email and believe you may have been a victim of fraud, please contact your financial institution immediately. Scamwatch has more information about what to do if you think your personal details have landed in the wrong hands.
