Legit / genuine number.
This number is an automated text from Star Track who is partnered with Aust Post. It's a delivery text message. It's about a parcel being delivered to your address today.
It asks for a choice (1, 2, or 3) 1= Leave at your address (if there is a safe place) & accept T&C's. 2 = Someone will be home. 3 = Take to Post Office if not home.

Caller from 0448 008 003 would be legit. SMS from 0448 008 003 could be a scam. if the SMS contains a link to mypo.st/xxxx this is a scam. do not click the link and call your carrier for further clarification. Had a msg supposed to be from Australia post about a delivery when I went in to the post office the told me it was a scam Caller: Aust post
Although the link provided looks like spam but it's not. Legit message from Aust post. Replied 2 (someone will be home) and got my parcel within couple of hours.
courier I got an SMS with a mypo.st link. I didn't follow the exact link but a visit to the home page satisfied me that it's *not* an Australia Post address. Aus Post Delivery scheduled Caller: SMS - providing Australia Post parcel tracking information
Message says that I have a parcel coming from Spotlight (Tasmania) and will be delivered to my home address: St Leonards, Launceston (Tas).
Only problem is I don't live and have never lived in Tasmania.
SCAM alert triggered and I did not respond at all. Be vigilant people!!!
Caller: SCAMMERS Pretending to be AUSPOST
I'm actually impressed. These folks have managed to spoof the correct phone number for aus post... or they have a webpage set up to spoof aus post. ALL of the links in their message are invalid, as in, they will take you to the scam connection. Any time you see they are trying to get you to a link that is not AUSPOST.COM.AU, it's a scam. On computers, rest the cursor over the link to see what the encoding actually is. On SMS messages and computer messages, do NOT click on the link without knowing exactly where it is taking you. It's a scam.... knowledge is YOUR weapon against these people since it's obvious the government is doing nothing about it. Don't let them suck you in.
I got the same message 21st September 2018 must be making the rounds again. Don't click on any link Australia post confirming parcel delivery retails. not spam This number has been texting me as ‘AusPost’ for the past two weeks, and now it’s getting to a point it’s almost two texts a day. I’ve already blocked one number and now this one started. Apparently I keep buying from Deals Direct and Mysale when no such thing has occurred Scam its a scam checking if your home fake Caller: Aust Post
Automated text from Australia Post asking for a reply whether anyone will be home to receive a delivery. Choice (1, 2, 3) 1= Leave at your address 2 = Someone will be home. 3 = Take to Post Office if not home
got message from this number re parcel to be delivered today. Am not expecting a parcel. Asked to choose whether home. Will not respond. Caller: auspost
got the txt with a mypo.stxxxx link. I am expecting a parcel today and replied that I'd be home. Checked the link through googles transparency report, nortons "is this website safe" and bitdefender security and all showed as safe. The link redirected me to the genuine Australia post tracking site but I still believe it's a bad idea to let anyone know you won't be home. To think that criminal networks haven't set up within Australia Post and other linked courier services or at the very least, enlisted postal workers to be their eyes and ears would seem somewhat naive.
The number is spoofed, phishing attempt do not click the embedded link. Do not reply, just block and report it to auspost.
