On AGL’s Door to Door Salesman…

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please choose your door-to-door salesmen more carefully.

A fellow came to my house this afternoon, and I was generally under the impression was that he was trying to trick or confuse me into getting electricity with you.

He did this by firstly telling me that electricity had been privatised and that I could now have 10% off my bill, and that GST would now be removed. Wrong AND confusing!

He then asked if I had sent in the application from my last bill to get 10% off my bill. I explained that I paid via direct debit, so didn´t actually have a last bill.

He then tried to tell me that even though AGL would be giving me the discount, I would stay with Energy Australia. He continued to say that AGL had taken over the distribution of electricity in the area, and that this is how it would be possible for me to get 10% off even if I stayed with my current retailer.

After a while, I managed to get him to admit that he was simply trying to get me to swap over to AGL from my current energy provider, and that I would get a 10% discount off my first bill if I did.

I have a gas account with you already, but will consider moving it to another company if you send someone like this to pester me at home again.

Yours etcetera,

J. Cuthbert
