DHL customers should be particularly vigilant at the moment, as fraudsters have developed a new scam to obtain sensitive data.

As Der Westen reports, some customers are receiving fake text messages claiming to be from DHL. These messages claim that a parcel cannot be delivered due to missing address details.

Recipients are asked to confirm their address via a link that is also sent.

Experts urgently warn against clicking on such links or disclosing personal data, as this can lead to data misuse or the installation of malicious software.

The consumer advice center has also warned against these fraudulent text messages and advises caution.

An indication of a forgery is often the use of abbreviated links beginning with “https://bit.ly/” and telephone numbers that do not begin with the Austrian country code +43.

Customers should always be skeptical of such messages and, if in doubt, contact DHL directly to verify the authenticity of the message.
