Norwood Action Group are warning of a Christmas scam involving undelivered parcels.
NAG say: “Scammers are using Christmas trading to send fake ‘attempted delivery’ emails using company names like DPD, such as the one below.
“This looks genuine apart from the tight options. “It’s easier to be sceptical of unexpected emails, but this one uses Christmas bustle to win.
“If you click on the link you may (not necessarily) download a malicious bug, but if you opt for the option to make a small payment for timed re-delivery, they have your bank details.
“The safe option if in doubt is to go to the company’s official website and put in the tracking number to search the claimed delivery. “This will establish if it’s genuine.”
NAG add: Merry Christmas!
