Spam Warning – DHL service. You should get the parcel! Delivery NR.8111

This is one of the other common spam emails that isn’t your typical badly done ones. This is for a parcel from DHL

This one comes with an attachment called ‘DHL_Label_2a761.zip’ do not ever open attachments unless you know who it’s from and you have eliminated that it is a spam email.

In this case it can be very difficult to tell if it’s a real one or not. Similar to Paypal, companies like this will genereally use your real name, the one on the account or a reference number that you should be able to check from a previous email or letter. Make sure you confirm that first.

You need to also think about are you actually waiting on a parcel and what company is delivering it.

They wouldn’t likely say that the cause is an error with the shipping address they would by standard either leave a card or attempt to deliver it the next day. If they don’t suceed then they would send the card in the post.

If it was sent by someone else then the company would get in touch with them that the address was wrong and wouldn’t use your email address in that instance.

You always need to bring some form of identification with you to get a parcel this doesn’t ask you to do that, so that’s a bit suspicious.

Also emails from the company would usually have actual branding, so you would see the logo somewhere on there, this one just doesn’t have that.
