The fake SMS using the name of Emirates Post.


Beware of fake Emirates Post SMS, residents warned

UAE residents were warned about fake SMS purportedly from Emirates Post, claiming that their package delivery has been delayed.

The fake SMS then lures victims to click on a link to “update your shipping address and reschedule your delivery.”

Emirates Post has dismissed the message as fake, saying that it is from scammers posing as representatives of the company.

The courier urged residents to be wary of responding to unsolicited messages. “We only send SMS through our Emirates Post registered account,” according to Emirates Post.

“Fraud comes in many forms from: email, SMS, WhatsApp messages, and survey with payment links impersonating Emirates Post,” it said, urging residents to report scammers to authorities.

Emirates Post also warned residents to be wary of emails with a payment link for delivery of a shipment.

“We will never contact you via Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or any other servers. Our official email addresses end with or,” according to Emirates Post. ICA/Expat Media
