Australia Post email scam on rise again
image
Australia Post is warning customers of emails which advise that a "courier" was unable to deliver a parcel to their address. Australia Post does not request customers to remit a payment for parcel collection, nor does it charge customers for holding a parcel.

The aim of this email scam is to install malicious software such as 'ransomware' which can 'take over' your computer files. Prevention is the best approach to any malware.

If you are unsure, ask your technical support provider.

If you receive this email, please delete it.
