Online security, scams & fraud

We're committed to protecting your security and helping you stay safe online.

In this section, you'll find information about how we protect you, how to protect yourself and what to do if you're targeted.

You'll learn how to combat serious crimes like identity theft, as well as some of the more common types of fraud and scams.

You can also visit our Scam alerts page for examples and updates, including scams currently targeting Australia Post customers.

If you suspect that you have received a scam email pretending to be from Australia Post, you can forward it to scams@auspost.com.au and we will investigate. Please note: this mailbox is for the reporting of scam emails only, and a personal response will not be provided.
