Scam warning: an email posing as Australia post is circulating.

Australia Post is warning its customers of the continued circulation of an email scam under the Australia Post brand prompting customers to download a voucher to take into their local post office.

An additional email scam asks Australia Post customers to download an email receipt and reconfirm the recipient’s home address.

Anyone who receives a suspicious email posing as Australia Post should refrain from opening the email or clicking on any links in the body of the email.

Customers should also take caution when clicking ‘unsubscribe’ on corrupt emails, as spammers may use this link to validate the targeted email address and send more spam.

Customers who suspect they have received a scam email can seek advice and report the scam through the SCAMwatch website.
