Definitely not a scam. We have just had a large shipment sent from the UK and I have been presented with all the correct paperwork for import duty. This is legitimate. If you want to receive your items, which I assume are worth over $1,000 because they've attracted import duty, you should definitely answer and make payment. Absolute scam.
I got the DHL routine, $236.50 for import taxes on a consignment. I pointed out to her that it was a scam and that she wouldn't have much luck, but she insisted on maintaining her bulls***.
Its MyNetFone Australia They keep calling asking for a michelle. When i asked who they were they said they can't tell me. They continue to call every few hours. This is a SCAM - Do NOT pay these f**** any money.
Basically, this is how it goes down... You buy something online from overseas, and somewhere between where you bought it from and Australia - There's a sneaky little c*** working for one of the delivery companies who is taking down peoples information off of parcels and passing it along to these scammers.
The scammers then phone you up (sometimes before your parcel arrives, sometimes weeks later), claiming to be from "DHL Express" (even when you probably never used DHL) and insist that you have a parcel delivery waiting, which requires you to pay Customs Import Duties and GST to them over the phone.
It's bullsh*t, but some people might fall for it if the scammers call them before their parcel arrives.
It's been reported on Scamwatch.gov.au - The more people who report it, the better.
In the meantime, just tell Susan (or whatever fake name the Idian b*tch uses) to f*ck off and hang up the phone!
Got a call from these guys today, saying I need to pay import duty on an item which shouldn't even be charged import duty because it is like $250. f*cking c*nts. SCAM! They get info from the dumpster or such and give you a phone number to call that's probably the person sitting next to them! DO NOT PAY! Caller: (07) 3329 6000

Legitmate DHL number. They are collecting import duties and taxes. Had to pay $300 for my parcel from the USA before it would be released. call accompanied a number of texts claiming to be from DHL. I'm not expecting anything
This low life number rang me 3 times today and every time they hung up on me. Tried ringing back from a silent number and it has always been engaged. Happy to block this number now :) you must be part of the scam group! I had a call this morning (12/01/2018) at 9.00 am AEST and, looking at the above comments, I'm glad I missed answering it. But - who I was ringing was actually the DHL company number, which is a 1300 number, regarding a paper letter in the post I had received - maybe me ringing DHL triggered it? Maybe whoever it is has somehow 'clipped' an electronic line to various companies and it alerts them when I/we are ringing the companies, and then that's how they are able to get my/our number that way? Weird. Anyway, I thought it was legitimate, so I've tried ringing that number a few times and always had the engaged sound. I'm glad I thought to look up that phone number on the net - I'm now blocking it, thank you! This is a legit number..
We had a shipment coing in from overseas via DHL and they were just calling to arrange delivery.
complete f*ckin rorters It's DHL. Yeh i have got a cl from this # a week ago & still keep on calling me! She left a voicemail saying i've parcel to release until pay the duty. Though they provided a valid tracking # but funny stuff I didn't order anything from Italy & im not expecting any! Called DHL and they confirmed nothing for me. And yeh bullsh*t people seriously?! Scam! saying I had to pay import tax on a parcel from the UK.
