One of a series of texts from different numbers, all claiming to be "our 3rd attempt to reach you. Request activation and login required to obtain successful resolution by 5pm" followed by a dubious link Message sent to my mobile COMMBANK: A PAYMENT of $102.55 has been sent to a NEW payee. If this was NOT you, please visit https://netbank.payeedetection.com.au
I sent this to my email and reported. Never act on these . Idiots I don't even bank with the Commonwealth.
SMS about a parcel with an unpaid customs fee, with a dubious link. Looks like phishing. This is a scam. Do not click the link. I got this message today:
