    Obviously AGL will offer these as other companies come knocking on their door taking away their customers :)

      AGL have been voted one of the 10 most dis-trusted companies in Australia. This is nothing more than a pathetic attempt to get the contact details so they can try and sell you their over-priced products, and lock out their competitors from knocking on your door with a better offer.

      Since energy supply has been privatised prices have gone through the roof. Privatizing only benefits rich shareholders, and AGL are the absolute worst of them. Energy should be completely nationalized, and the CEOs and board members of all these energy companies should be jailed for stealing for the poor.

        I have my local postie on CCTV (multiple times) getting out of his van, throwing the card in the mailbox & driving off, without ever setting foot on the property. Our front door is <5m from the post box, so no excuses there.

        No point complaining as I'd like continue having mail delivered, not lost.

    •  

      Install a camera in your front door area, so you can record them quickly slipping it in the door (without a parcel in their hands) and running off.

      Although sometimes they slip it in the mailbox, and don’t even approach the door, so in those cases, the camera doesn’t record anything at all.

    Negging deal, because AGL is really abnoxious with marketing calls

    •  

      Give them fake details, real postal address.

    •  

      Customer Number is an Optional field on the subscription form. You can still get a sticker and not have marketing calls.

      So then update your communication preferences with AGL

        So then update your communication preferences with AGL

        I never have had (and never will have) an account with AGL … yet I still receive marketing calls from them. Either I've p*ssed off someone and they've decided to use my number maliciously to subscribe to marketing calls or AGL has no regard for the law and the do not call register. I'm guessing it's the latter (just 'cause AGL is the only company that's really obnoxious about calling me).

        •  

          I never have had (and never will have) an account with AGL

          That has nothing to do with your communication preferences for marketing calls.

          Either I've p*ssed off someone and they've decided to use my number maliciously to subscribe to marketing calls

          Or somebody typed their number wrong and ended up typing yours.

          AGL has no regard for the law and the do not call register

          Of course they do, there are fines for calling people on it.

          If you are on AGLs marketing list because your number has been provided to them then the do not call list will not stop them calling you. You need to ask AGL to remove your number.

            Who does one complain to about this? I've complained to the ACMA and the police, but didn't get very far with either of them.

            You need to ask AGL to remove your number.

            Have you actually tried calling AGL? See how far you get without a customer number and the last thing I want to do is give some call center pleb my number again, so he can put it into their databases.

            I hope you can see my dilemma.

              The do not call website has the details

              Have you actually tried calling AGL?

              Why don't you use the online form to update your communication preferences with AGL?

              the last thing I want to do is give some call center pleb my number again, so he can put it into their databases.

              How can they remove your phone number when they don't know what it is?

      A salesperson who ignores your Do Not Knock sticker is breaking the Australian Consumer Law and the company they represent could be fined up to $50,000 by a court.

      Should have grabbed their details. The more fines for this shifty doorknocking companies the better.

    •  

      Well technically he wasn't knocking because he was ringing the bell or pressing a button, as you may……so unless the sticker says "This also includes pressing a button or ringing any sort of sound chimes as a door bell" he's still right….

    Write in delivery notes: "Do not knock, just stick on my door."

    Are politicians bound to obey this sign? They are not bound to the Do Not Call list (AFAIK)

      Politicians are not bound by the stickers or no junk mail on your letter box. I had an extensive conversation about this when my local guy knocked on my door, he even included links to the relevant legislation when he sent me an email. (Neighbourhood watch shared my email when I asked them to not give me junk mail.)

    AGL almost as bad as foxtel.

    I accidentally ticked yes for foxtel to call me from a Dominos order.

    15 missed calls from mobile numbers later (blocked every number and then signed up each number on foxtels own website for a call back to sign up to foxtel) they stopped.

    Dominos and Foxtel can both get stuffed now.

    Neg because AGL are a scummy mob, this isn't a deal and I hope people do not fall for this. No offence to OP.

    •  

      What's wrong with them? I was a customer with them for maybe 16+ years total. I didn't have any problems with them. Just curious.

      •  

        My view is that AGL are not a good corporate citizen (at best) and are morally corrupt at worst.
        Plenty of info published on news sites over the years to support this view.

        •  

          So basically, like most power retailers?

          Who do you suggest?

          •  

            @lostn: As stated elsewhere in this discussion:
            My view of AGL is not focused on their sales tactics, their pricing models, their retail energy delivery, etc.
            My view of AGL as not being a good corporate citizen is in relation to their well-published regulatory non-compliances, and in relation to their corporate strategies in regard to gas supplies on the east coast of Australia and the negative outcomes that those are having on customers and citizens.

            There is a different current discussion re energy suppliers in Victoria:

            In relation to 'Don't Knock' stickers, my dog is enough of a deterrent for most cold-callers.

    AGL is an evil company with their misleading tactics & lies, cold calling and door knocking.

    Their salespeople continually attempted to convince me that they were my supplier and they could give me a greater discount.
    I knew for a fact that my supplier was AusNet Services and that my retailer was one of the cheapest in the country. Yet they continued to lie.

    If you need a sticker, there are plenty of other places to get one.

    •  

      all power companies do that. Or they claim they are from the government here to check your bills to make sure you're not being overpaid. And surprise surprise, you are. So they will change you to a different provider but same supplier so no interruption.

      They are all dishonest scumbags but AGL shouldn't be singled out for that.

      •  

        My last three retailers have never done that to my family or myself.

        They should definitely be singled out, they are the one provider, my family, my work colleagues and obviously many people on here recognise and associate with these deceiving practices.

        •  

          If you're already with them, they're not going to try and court you.

          I don't think I've met a single power company that services my area who didn't also use shady tactics like this. But it's been outlawed for a few years now, so I don't get door knockers claiming to be the government. But I still get callers who do that.

    • +2 votes

      I didn't neg vote you, but I would recommend you research AGL and their recent performances in the field of regulatory compliance, as widely reported in the press.
      They are not a good corporate citizen.
