Received the following SMS:
DBM Consultants, a research firm will contact you for a study about Australian companies. It is not for sales or marketing. Your number was randomly generated.
Caller: COVID results
My results for COVID test
I got an SMS said I have a pathology bill is overdue, call 1800 015 973 to discuss. It's a scam!!! But the scariest thing is, I do have a pathology bill is overdue !!! Almost believe it Caller: 0439 603 528
Just to uptade this number status. ( SCAM)
Got a SMS " Pathology bill overdue"
I used my private health insurance to pay the bill ( on the day I made the blood test).
It seems someone has access to mobile numbers. How'd they know I did this test?!
I checked my e-mail, my insurance acc and nothing. I will be ignoring this sms and if someone calls me, I will go to the lab in person to check it out.
Do not fall for this!
This is the Department of Employment. New employment services start in July.

I also receive two messages one in April from a Medical centre and another one today from a Job search agency. Strange how come two different companies have the same No. or may be they using some system which send sms using this No. Caller: Scam?
They texted me.. know my name?? Saying I’ve been selected for a dept of education, skills and employment survey and to complete it online to avoid a follow up call. Also gave me a login ID and password.
Dont bother answering these calls 😂 i dont give anyone i dont know my number so.. if your not in my contact list u can f off thanks SMS Service Provider.

Well Kryptx I also received an SMS regarding Australian company research as above. You don't need to be rude to get your message across dude. Try going the other way (being nice to people), just how you would like to be 'spoken' to yourself. Caller: 3 different companies over 3 years- Qantas, Aust Clinical Labs and local Mazda dealer
Must be some kind of SMS relay service used by different companies.
If it quotes DHM in the text & it is about a pathology bill, it is probably on the money. My pathology bill (difference between the actual cost & Medicare refund) is actually overdue by about 3 days & DHM is Douglas Hanley Moir the pathology company that did my test. I just rang DHM on the number from my invoice & they sent me the text. A message saying I have booked a secure carpark in a different state, with PIN number doesn't belong to any of them you idiots. it's my personal number you fags and it's vodafone Caller: sms
sms claiming to be from yarra city council, askinf if i want to do a survey to get a free $50 visa card, link provided looks suspicious
Caller: Message saying Essential Energy sending someone 0439 603 528
0439 603 528 sent a message. The message said someone from Skilltech working as an Essential Energy Meter reader is coming in the next 1 to 3 weeks and to give them Covid 19 distancing space basically. Above that message was one giving a secure code to csc.gov.au/token..... etc (looks like an affiliate marketing link though showing aust govt in the address. Nowhere in the message did it comfirm it was from Essential Energy. Very sus! I am not going to allow someone to come to the house unchallenged under the pretence they are meter readers.
text about job opportunity. says i only have until 2pm to call an associated number- also says i can respond with stop to opt out. still dubious
