This isn't a scam number it is linked to an online SMS messaging system being utilised by more than 1 organisation. That is why they provide you with a landline number to call then back on. My call was from passport office about a passport I was guarantor for This number keeps texting me about 'over due rates' and how to easily make a payment online to them. What a scam. SAFE. department of immigration reminder for citizenship test Text message saying my Council rates are overdue. Rubbish. Interesting they do not seem to know my name. Got a text from Maroondah Hospital about my orthopedic surgeon appointment. Must be a free number that is cycled through when businesses send texts from computes Caller: Online Creative SMS from Counselling Online

Scam... some dodgy link for logbooks The text message from this number for my case from the passport office. Initially I ignored the text thinking it is a scam. But the next day got a call from unknown number claiming from passport office (same name in the text message). I was hesitant to entertain her until she gave me her direct line to contact and after I confirmed with my ex regarding my son's passport application. So, all good for this number but unusual for a passport office to send text message to contact them! Totally legit. Call from the Passport office about my passport application. All good. passport office Recieved Maseeage

It asks me book citizenship appointment. Dont know if it's legit or not
A text message about checking on your neighbours after the fires/storms in NSW. Looks like a number of different Gov departments use this number for messaging. I've contacted with a hospital staff with this number 1 year ago.
Today I received a text message from this number telling me about my citizenship test which I've just been informed this morning. This is bizzar ~
Caller: Australian Passport Office
Totally legit, was a message to call the passport office.
Scam. Telling me my rates are overdue by over $1000 with a link to an non-council website to pay. Caller: Passport Office
Definitely the passport office. Luckily I turned my phone on in time to see the text from them, then to receive a call from their Melbourne office confirming it. It's likely it was previously an Optus sales number. Now it's used for Australian Passport Office applications checks alerts.

Assume it is a scam - left a "silent message" for about a minute before hanging up.
