The States of Jersey Police have just issued this warning:
“We’ve seen a few reports in the last few days about a parcel delivery scam where victims receive an email supposedly from DPD Parcel Delivery informing them they have tried to deliver a parcel and are requesting bank or payment details to re-deliver the package.
Be aware this is a #SCAM Scams like this are common and they could pretend to be from Amazon, Google, Microsoft or HM Customs and the list goes on.
Please be vigilant. Be SCAM aware.
General advice for scams and frauds is that you should:
Never click on any links and always call a bank or company back on a trusted number if they ask you to action anything.
Banks will never ask for your bank details or to move funds to another account.
If you feel rushed, be suspicious.
Never divulge personal information like credit card details or bank details.
