This is what Australia Post has to say!

20 September 2018

Australia Post is aware that fraudulent SMSs are being sent to Australians offering fake ‘mystery box’ prizes.

The SMS asks you to click on a link that isn’t related to Australia Post. The below example leads to a fake survey and shouldn’t be trusted. After completing the questions they will direct you to a ‘reward’ which asks for your banking information. Please do not provide your banking information – it’s how scammers can take money from your accounts.

Due to the way mobile phones combine conversations these scams can appear in the same conversation view as legitimate Australia Post SMS messages.

Please note that Australia Post will never email or SMS you asking you to click on a link that asks for any of your personal or financial information, including any form of ID, passwords, credit card details and account information.

If you are in doubt about the authenticity of an email, SMS or a phone call, please delete immediately or hang up.

If you’ve sent any personal information to the scam email address and are worried that your identity has been stolen, please call ID CARE on 1300 432 273 as they provide free services to victims of identity theft.
