Had a genuine parcel delivered within hours of text.
text message received from 0448 008 003 saying "your item is coming today. Nobody home? Reply Y and we'll leave it at your address if theres a safe place. Tracking details: " and gives a link to click. I am waiting on a parcel, but this text looks dodgy. If it is legit (like some of the comments on this page suggest) they need to include who the message is from. 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.

My number has recently been spoofed so I am certain this is a scam. Just wanting to keep you guys safe.
Scam Aus Post Delivery scheduled courier 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.
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. 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!!!
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 AusPost: Your parcel from ( name ) is coming today. Want us to leave it if Nobody's hoke?
Reply Yes.Tracking and T&Cs: https://mypos.st/IQbiWbjPd5m.
I get these messages when I'm receiving a package, I have the Aus Post App & No when Im getting a delivery.
I have read comments saying this is a scam look at the mypo.st but if you look carefully at Auspost they have the same link exactly.
I'm waiting for 3 packages to arrive today.
So I am pretty confident this message is 100% legit.
Don’t worry, this is real. I was skeptical as well but the parcel it said was coming, came a few hours later.
AusPost: Your delivery coming today from Catch Marketplace . https://mypo.st/1Be8qzCa_jE. Pls text a choice (1 or 2 or 3) ASAP
1=Leave at your address (if there's a safe place) & accept T&Cs
2=Someone will be home
3=Take to Post Office if not home

2nd message - It was followed by this because I didn’t reply:
AusPost: Your parcel from 'Hamper Wor...' is coming today.
Want us to leave it if nobody's home? Reply 'Y'.

Caller: SMS from AusPost
Received a message from AusPost https://mypo.st/xxxxxxx to say parcel is coming today and to reply Y if nobody home. I replied Y - didn’t click on link as this is always a no-no!! Then I went to Australia Posts App and checked the tracking for the expected parcel. Previously, the tracking showed the parcel should be arriving the next day. On checking, the details it now shows an update from me to accept parcel if not home today. So, not a scam. Just as I finished typing this the parcel has just arrived by Aus courier. Hope this helps others.
