Fake text purporting to be from Australia Post, can't deliver parcel as unpaid postage fee.
Glad to see a few more reports come through, confirming a scam, because I almost wasn't 100% sure as coincidently I AM expecting a package to be delivered from a source that I have never used before. But being dubious I looked up the mobile number that sent me this exact text:
Hello- Your order has been held at our forwarding depot. Please follow instructions here: http//m5b.me/2yPEs.
However it linked me to TNT not Australia Post like these other reports, asking for a $3 customs charge to be paid before rearranging delivery (but again this was tricky as my purchase products were direct imports). Anyhow, after reading all these comments now I can assume SCAM. Hope my addition here helps some others.
Fake text claiming to be from Australian Post, provided false tracking number and request for personal information plus postage fee when arranging other delivery days. Fake delivery hold up purporting to be from TNT. SCAM!!!
