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.

Aus Post Delivery scheduled Caller: A text from the number above.
I was texted this same message and came to this site. I've just taken delivery of what I ordered, and was worried all morning because of people saying it was a scam. It's not. I even know the guy -- he's our regular parcel deliverer!
So to all you alarmists, you are wrong. And to anyone who gets one of these. your parcel is coming. And to those who went to the PO, they got it wrong too. We've had this courier for over two years.
