Re: I have received a spam from Australian Government Services requesting information

Well the first step in security would probably be to red the big red bold writing telling you this is a public forum and not to post personal information (like your phone number). You can edit your post to remove it.

While its great to look out for others about a million other people probably got the same spam (and another million will get more tonight). Its impossible to block SMS so you can only see what options your phone has and keep your number safe (even then they often just SMS random numbers anyway).

Keep vigilant and never click on any links in email or sms asking for payment, ID details or even just to contact someone.

So it was an SMS?

Curious as to exactly what it says. Can you post a screen shot here (without any personal details)?
