Got a sms from this number on Saturday morning, with the 61 international code in front.
Tells me that parcel AU-73M2OC29 to my phone number is pending at the distribution center (American spelling)
To authorise parcel delivery and other options click this link: 7n9.me/2Fu3U which takes me to the Google home page.
Caller: SMS message about blocked parcel
Tell me my parcel is held up in customs.
Transferred to a fake TNT/FedEx page.
Tracking number is fake, scam page.
Wanting money for a delivery I knew nothing about. Caller: Scam parcel peeps

It was an SMS that said my order has been held at their forwarding depot and asked me to follow instructions on a web page. Did not click, obvious spam Scam message about a parcel. Wasnt expecting any parcels. I have received a few of these messages in the past. I just dont bother going to a link. If in doubt ring the courier company. Caller: Text message
Telling me I had an item waiting for delivery and I just needed to enter my credit card details to pay a $3 customs fee 🙄. Originated in Cypress
Caller: 0498 534 721
I received a text from this number on 30/3/21 telling me there was a package for me. I clicked on the link via my iphone and it took me through a very believable set-up with TNT and fed ex icons that asked me to nominate a time for delivery. Finally it asked for $3 "customs fee" which I didn't pay. Clearly a scam.
Received text from this number that sent me to a site with genuine looking TNT FEDEXxpress logo with a tracking code to authorise delivery - and asking payment for a $3 custom fee. IT'S A SCAM!!! I checked on TNT's internet site - the tracking code is fake if it starts with "FEX" and end with "GB". I called TNT and they confirmed it's a fake tracking code and a scam. 0498 534 721 txt me saying click on the code for my parcel details. DONT DO IT Yep, had the same message from the same number, wanting $3 to release my order. Got this message goes to a parcel site TNT-
Says you need to pay $3 customs, asks for name address etc. (didn’t provide it)
Hello - Your order has been held at our forwarding depot. Please follow instructions here: http://v0i.me/2kueW
SMS with a link, blocked and deleted. Definitely a scam. SCAM!!!! Be careful. do not get tempted and give your details. The text message will say you have parcel and you need to pay $3 for custom duty. It will tempt you by showing it is an iphone 12 pro too. DO NOT FALL for it. Received a text message from this number - definitely a scam. Referred to my order being held at their forwarding depot, and requesting that I follow the instructions at a given web address. Apart from never placing any orders online, had a friend who is a cyber security expert check - confirmed malware link. Recommend anyone getting a message from this number to delete and block. I got a similar message saying: Hello - Your order has been held at our forwarding depot. Please follow instructions by clicking the link. Scam SMS Format:
Hello - Your order has been held at our forwarding depot. Please follow instructions here: http://ks6.me/2gPMI
