The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau are warning people of a DPD parcel delivery scam.
Although the attached alert specifies the courier DPD, I have read of other similar scam messages in which a different courier was referred to, but the scam remains the same. Criminals will exploit people’s curiosity, I wasn’t expecting a parcel, I wonder what it is?
It is this kind of curiosity that may lead to the recipient of the email, text, WhatsApp, Messenger whatever, to click on the link or call a customer care number within the message.
If you receive such a message, either delete it because you are not expecting a delivery, or, contact the courier using a tried, tested and trusted means. Identify the genuine website and use contact details from there, not from the suspicious message.
