I got an sms from 'ATO' and the text message is "In partnership with myGov, every OPTUS customer is eligible for a tax rebate. Visit bit.ly/myGovOptus and verify your details to process your claim." I've search the ATO and Optus website and didn't find any offer like this.
This is not the first time that I got a phishing sms. Last week I got an sms from "OPTUS" said my bill couldn't process but I've check online and my balance is all processed.
Getting annoy by these phishing sms ... How to remove my number from being targed
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Wow, this is the most full-service phishing attempt I have ever seen. That link takes you to my-gov-help.com and tries to get all this info:
1) Your mygov login details:
2) All this personal info, including if your mobile number is prepaid or postpaid:
3) Your drivers licence and passport details:
4) Your credit/debit card details:
5) What type of online bank you have:
6) And finally your bank account login:
Once it has milked you for all it can, it takes you to the real mygov login page.
F.Y.I I reported the site to both bitly and NameSilo (the domain registrar) last night and the site is now unreachable (DNS will no longer resolver).
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, @Niclook. Yes it is a scam sms. I have already forwarded this to our scam team for review. In the mean time don`t click on any link and just delete the sms. Would also recommend to report the details → here. Kartik

Hi @YetAnotherAcc, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Can you please forward all the details and screenshot to hidden so that we can investigate further.
All the screenshots are in my previous post. Although I have full screen version of all those screenshots above, they provide no additional useful information so there is no point in sending them specifically.
No worries, @YetAnotherAcc all good.
