Australia Post is warning customers of an email which attempts to scam people and collect money.
The email appears to be sent by Australia Post and advises that a courier company was unable to deliver a parcel to the recipient's address.
It then requests the customer to print a label before they can collect it from the local post office. The customer is required to remit a payment first in order to be able to print the article label.
Australia Post warns it is a scam and urges people to delete the email.
It has also been listed on SCAMWatch, with the website warning people of a similar phone scam.
Australia Post says it never calls or emails customers to request payment for an undeliverable mail item.
Tips to protect yourself from fraud or scams include: do not open suspicious or unsolicited emails; do not click on any links in a suspicious email or open any attached files; and be careful when clicking unsubscribe on an email as spammers may use the 'unsubscribe' button to validate your email.
