Caller: SCAM Medicare
Claimed to be from Medicare informing that I have been in contact with a Covid positiv person and gave web address to contact for the purchase of a PCR test
Caller: 0474 501 965
Received text message saying:
"Your delivery has been placed on hold. Please follow through with it: auspost.resolve.com or it will be returned to sender."
Tapping on the web link masquerading as auspost.resolve.com takes me to a website that looks like an Australia Post page, with a button called "Start verification" taking to the next page that asks for name, phone number and date of birth.
Cannot see the actual website on a phone, but there is no "auspost-resolve.com" when searching for it on the Internet.
The fake webpage is professionally done, with AusPost branding and cute graphics, not a spelling mistake or bad English usage in sight.
It beggars belief that this phone number is still in use - assuming the number shown in the app is the actual number.
You have added a NEW PAYEE to e-banking. If this was NOT you, visit https://bendigo-new-payee.com

Tapping on web address takes to a very professional-looking website with Australia Post branding, neat graphics and no spelling errors or poor English.
There is a button named START VERIFICATION.
Tapping on it takes to the next page that wants name, phone number and date of birth.
Tapping on the View Site Information brings up a page from Australia Post advertising their introduction of electric vehicles.
On the phone I cannot bring up the real URL, web search for the pretend URL above is unsuccessful.
