*****scammers using this number claiming to be ups and that you have a package that requires clearance fee of $968 for you to recieve it!!! ***** Received an unexpected call from this number, which sounded like it was from an overseas call centre. That made me suspicious immediately. Then they said they were from UPS and were "calling to collect customs duties". I was expecting a parcel from overseas from UPS, but I thought it might be a scam, so I hung up. Looked up UPS's number (02) 8313 3030 is an outbound only number), called them back to confirm, and it was actually UPS that had called me. Yes this is definitely UPS. (02) 8313 3030 is their outbound number. You can't return the call on that number. The return call number for UPS is 131 877. If you are paying duty on goods from UPS (which is what they rang me for) then you select Option 4. Caller: ups
i bought an item which had ups delivery. ask them to send you the customs notice and get a customs broker to do it for a little cheaper (if the parcel isnt urgent)
Legitimate number, used by UPS. Not unknown. It's a non-reply # from UPS. You need to call back on their listed #. All good. Scammers text the following text message:

Called as I owed clearance of a parcel - this is a legitimate number and call
Legit. UPS calling to collect duty for an import I was expecting.
Legitimate - I needed to pay import tax. Very efficient service.
A legitimate phone call from UPS. I was wary at first as I didn't recognise the number, but a quick search online confirmed it was ok - it was regarding an invoice I received from them recently.
Answered a call but no one there, didn't call back or receive any further calls or messages Caller: UPS
This is legit, call center is overseas, was expecting a package, importing goods into Aus over 1k = tax and duties are required
Legitimate, UPS called to collect import duty on an overseas package i was expecting. I got them to email me the invoice whilst on the phone to them Obviously if you are not expecting an overseas delivery then don't pay, it is an overseas call centre they might get the wrong number occasionally i imagine.
UPS duty and tax collection UPS parcel delivery Caller: UPS
UPS, based on the above messages & an overseas order that has just come in for me, this might be their line regarding collection of costs incurred through Customs
