DHL email pishing scam

Got another email today. This one wants me to open a file on my PC attached in the email. Note they even use DHL and a phone number. Of course when you call DHL they first warn you that a fraudulent email is being distributed with a title DHL tracking number. DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT!

Never open an attachment in an email unless you know exactly who it is from. If it does not make sense, take some time to figure out if you ordered any packages, have an account with the company or do business with them at all.

Most of these emails prey on peoples greed and curiosity. Don’t fall victim. If you’re not sure call the company instead of clicking on links or downloarding attachments.

Here is what this email said.


We were not able to deliver postal package you sent on the 14th of March in time because the recipient’s address is not correct.
Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office.
