Phone Scammers Pretending To Be From Australia Post

We’ve repeatedly noticed the persistence of scam calls pretending to be technical support from Microsoft, Telstra and other large companies, and now there’s a seasonally appropriate version in the wild: callers demanding payment for a parcel due for delivery from Australia Post. As ever, it’s a con, and our advice is simple: just hang up.

As the government-backed SCAMwatch site notes:

Australia Post will never call you to request payment for an undeliverable mail item. If you receive a call that matches this description hang up!

Worth passing on to your more susceptible relatives and friends.
