What to look for
This particular phishing attempt involves a variety of Australian company branded emails informing the end user of a problem with their nonexistent delivery.

How phishing scams work
Phishing scams are when hackers use the identity of brands you know and trust to convince you an immediate action is required on your behalf. These emails are usually threatening, implying that a consequence will be taken if personal or financial information is not provided.This is how they gain direct access to your credentials, finances and possibly your identity.
How to respond
