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: 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.
