Fake DHL Emails

Good Morning, 

We’ve seen a large increase in an old favourite over the last few days.

The DHL email.

The email will look something like this

From: DHL Delivery Services ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )

Subject: DHL Tracking number 076652338472

Hello!

The courier company was not able deliver your parcel by your address.

You may pickup the parcel at our post office personality,

The shipping label is attached to this e-mail.

Please print this label to get this package at our post office.

Thank you for attention.
DHL Delivery Services.

It will also have an attachment “dhl_viewer.zip”

The zip file contains a program which is actually a virus.

The key points to take away

Regardless of whether you may actually be expecting a parcel from DHL they will NEVER send a you program via email

Note that the email is very generic, it contains no personal details or any mention of company names

If you get a message like this delete it.

If you are expecting a package then check using their online tracking services. All delivery services have these and you can enter the tracking number provided.

If you’re still not sure get in touch and we can check it out for you.

Always treat every e-mail with an attachment with suspicion.

Please pass on this information to anyone you feel may benefit from it.

As always if you aren’t sure about anything that looks even vaguely suspicious please get in touch.
