DHL Delivery scam email
DHL Delivery Problem
Following on from the UPS Tracking email scam from I received a similar scam email, supposedly from DHL, with the subject line DHL Delivery Problem NR 3H6JZBN. It supposedly came from a Bridget Vickers, but the scammer that sent this email didn’t have the intelligence to mask the email with a DHL email address, they used receipts28 @ rotasetrilhas.com.
DHL Delivery zip file
This DHL scam email includes a zip file which the email urges me to open:
We were not able to deliver the postal package which was sent on the 8th of July in time because the recipient’s address is wrong.
Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our department.
Your DHL Delivery Services.
The zip file, in my case, is D1c8020fd.zip. If you receive a similar email from purporting to be from DHL, don’t open the zip file, it likely contains a piece of malicious software like a trojan that will give the sender access details to your machine. I haven’t looked into the exact trojan that it contains, as that isn’t important as far as this article is concerned.
This is purely to let you know that if you receive a DHL email, saying there is a DHL delivery problem, from an email address that isn’t DHL, that has no DHL branding on it, and opens with Hello! rather than using your name, treat it immediately that it’s a scam email. If the email has a file attached that you have to unzip, it’s not just a scam, it is malicious, as it likely has a trojan attached. Do nothing else other than hit shift and delete and take it right out of your computer!
If you have received similar DHL scam email, send us the details of the email address, subject and zip file name and we’ll print the details here so that people my find them when searching in the search engines. We don’t need the main body of the email, as they have all been covered in the hundreds of comments left. Thanks.
