    And yet I'm sure their next internal report on complaints will show a drastic reduction.
    With the screenshots attached you can see when click to leave feedback or a complaint it leads to a screen with no fields to leave any details. :rolleyes:

    I think this is the winner ')


    An Adelaide couple sorting their mail last week discovered a postcard from Tahiti postmarked 1966.

    The faded postcard from the South Pacific island was delivered to the Wattle Park home of Tim and Claire Duffy on Monday but addressed to "Robert Girogio" from "Chris".

    In his message written half a century ago, Chris penned that although the weather was humid he was "enjoying myself greatly".




    The photograph on the postcard shows the waterfront of Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia.

    The late delivery prompted an apology from Australia Post.

    "It is clear something went wrong 50 years ago after the postcard was posted in French Polynesia, and we apologise for the inconvenience," a statement from Australia Post said.

    "Australia Post takes great pride in the timely, safe and efficient delivery of mail and we are confident that the vast majority of mail and parcels arrive on time."

    I think Aus Post are deliberately failing to deliver parcels in an attempt to get us to sign up for post office boxes, My Post, etc.

    Twice recently I have had notifications of failed deliveries when I was at home; obviously they have not rung the doorbell but instead pretended no-one was home. That's called lying to your customers. The first one was carded, which must take more time than actually attempting delivery.. but today I have received this message by email, and no card has been left:

    The attachment cannot be opened, so I don't even know which post office to go to, let alone what the item is or when it will be available. All I can say is, it is lucky I am in town at the moment, or I don't know what would happen to the parcel. Would they really send it back after 48 hours? I thought the policy was a week at least..

    Last time I was forced to go to the PO to collect a parcel I made sure to tell the woman at the counter "I don't know why the postman didn't ring the doorbell!" and I could tell she was expecting it, and hears it all day long. Her answer was completely non-commital and unhelpful, along the lines of "Mm-Hmm".

    Not bloody good enough!

    Lucky for you the attachment didn't open!

    Most likely a virus.

    Last time I saw an email like that it was Cryptolocker and all my wife's files were encoded and a ransom demanded.

    How does the postie know your email address?
    Why was no card left?
    When was the last time you had to print out an invoice to pick up a letter?
    When did it change from 5 days holding to 48 hours?

    They use the AusPost logo but the English is usually bad but you are in such a rush to get your mail you ignore the issues and click the button.

    Yes you're right. I wouldn't put such bad service past Aus Post, but it does look fake, and just now I saw the email address (hidden) is some random Yahoo email.

    I have had legitimate emails and texts from Aus Post before, but will be more careful in future! Probably a good thing I pay for the full AVG Inernet Security if I'm that easily fooled! File is now shredded and full scan underway.

    I just completed the on-line survey of performance by Australia Post. I rated them a 0, based upon past performance.
    Response: address for survey has been permanently moved or is otherwise unavailable.
    That'll teach me - not allowed to give them a zero.

    The other company is $2.50 if the driver is lucky.

    No wonder the driver is always in a hurry.

    Rather than wading through all of the post here has anyone used Postmate other than me ?

    I used it just before Christmas and despite my best efforts to stuff it up all went well surprisingly :/

    Yes I made one phone call which was picked up quickly and gave me the peace of mind I was seeking.

    So Postmate using my new Portland Oregon USA postal address gets a thumbs up from me.

    Happy New Year :)

    I think they are just taking the piss now - I went to two different Auspost outlets this afternoon to find them both closed.
    On third attempt I went to one of their business centres to be told its an "Australia Post Public Holiday" and I could lodge articles if I wished but there were no drivers coming to pick anything up so they would just sit there overnight.

    Anyone ever heard of this before?
