February Scams

Parcel Redelivery
The Parcel Redelivery scam has reappeared. You receive an email from either a delivery company, often called IPS, impersonating UPS, but also the post office, both appear to be genuine, stating that your parcel or package couldn’t be delivered and therefore there is a very modest charge, often £2.99p to cover the cost of the redelivery.

The email asks that you click on the link, which then asks for your bank details to enable payment of the charge. Obviously once these are given, then any amount can be taken out of your bank account.
