Scammers targeting Emirates Post customers have struck again, with residents reporting of receiving new SMS claiming to be from the company.

The fake SMS warns that a parcel has been stopped for delivery, and urges the recipient to “update their address and pay for shipping” via a dubious link.

Emirates Post has repeatedly warned customers about the scam, saying that it is from fraudsters posing as representatives of the company. It urged residents to refrain from clicking on unknown links, or to pay for shipment delivery.

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

Emirates Post urged residents to be wary of responding to unsolicited messages, adding that “we only send SMS through our Emirates Post registered account.”

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