Phone scam data » Parcel Delivery


Criminals are calling and texting unsuspecting consumers posing as companies like Hermes, Royal Mail, and the Post Office informing them they have missed delivery at their home.

The scammers will then ask you to pay a missed delivery fee over the phone or direct you to a website where it will ask you to make a payment with your bank or credit card. The website will look legitimate to a real delivery company.

Usually, the fee will be small so you are more likely to pay. This isn’t where the scammers make their money, they are after your card details. When you pay over the phone or through their website, they will empty your bank account using your credit card information.

Another tactic they use is to send you a link to track your delivery or download their app to do so. This is malicious software that scammers can use to access your device and steal your identity or access your online banking.
