One of a series of texts from different numbers, all claiming to be "our 3rd attempt to reach you. Request activation and login required to obtain successful resolution by 5pm" followed by a dubious link Same message:
Name: third and last reminder concerning your identity and personal data is exposed. Immediate action is required (link).
I can only assume that this is for people who want their personal data exposed.
Received sms form this number saying I won a draw (which I did not participate in). Asking to click a link to claim a prize. Definitely a scam; blocked this number. The interesting thing - they know my name. Be careful.
Message sent to my mobile COMMBANK: A PAYMENT of $102.55 has been sent to a NEW payee. If this was NOT you, please visit https://netbank.payeedetection.com.au
I sent this to my email and reported. Never act on these . Idiots I don't even bank with the Commonwealth.
SMS about a parcel with an unpaid customs fee, with a dubious link. Looks like phishing. This is a scam. Do not click the link. I got this message today:

from 0466 072 726

There is a package (HAR-V572-N0R) waiting to be collected: http://c.4hlq.com/fNgPr You took one of the spots on our 16/10-list. scammers giving me final notice, I wish I could respond and put them on notice. I've been getting a run of text messages from various mobile numbers with links at the bottom talking about my account being locked etc if I don't click on the link. I received the message from this number today which stated:
"..... your account will be locked unless you submit your preferences by 3PM. Please visit...... (insert dodgy link here)"
Threatening text....you have 2 choices, the easy way and the hard way. I not happy am reporting to AFP Got the same message from this mobile number 2 times already with the same message details about activating by 5pm.
