MISSED DELIVERY SCAM

On the run up to Christmas it isn’t unusual to see the scammers out in full force but this year, on top of everything else, there seems to be more to contend with. The latest scam to be aware of involves a rather convincing message from a delivery company and although you may be aware of this already, please take care to make sure you never click on links sent to you as it’s possible the scam may be expanding.

Here’s the information from Hampshire Constabulary:

Please see warning about a delivery scam currently being used to gain entry to bank accounts of victims. As there has been a lot of publicity about this scam I suspect criminals will modify the messages to come from Royal Mail, Hermes, Yodel, DHL and other widely used delivery services. You may also see communications purporting to be from Amazon, eBay and other online retailers pushing a similar type of scam.

If you have been a victim of fraud or cybercrime, please report it to Actionfraud.police.uk, or call 0300 123 2040.
