Medicare & Aus Post SMS scam

You may have seen news reports yesterday of an active phishing campaign via SMS, pretending to be from either Medicare or Australia Post. The messages claim that you have a rebate owed or a competition opportunity and asks you to click through to a website and provide your personal details.

The ACSC recommends that you do not click on any links that you receive via unsolicited text messages or emails, particularly where personal information is requested. If you need to contact or conduct business with Medicare or Australia Post, you should contact them directly or access your account via their secure apps or websites.
