Lately, a wave of e-mail spam has appeared and reached the customers and employees of DHL. We would like to inform you that:
- these messages do not come from DHL - someone has illegally used the name of our company and our address data
- you should not open any links in the messages nor any files
in attachments - doing so may activate a computer virus
- we recommend that you delete any such messages from your e-mail box
- DHL is not able to stop these e-mails spreading because they do not come from our network.
These fake e-mails take the following form:
- In the sender field there is a name associated with DHL. An entry example,
which has been seen, is e.g. DHL Express, DHL24.
- The sender's e-mail address is not registered at the @dhl.com domain, from which we send all our messages to our Polish DHL customers. These fake e-mails are being sent from different addresses of private persons and companies.
- A tracking link goes to the site that contains malicious content and software. Please do not click the link!
- The e-mail subject suggests the message is about a DHL parcel. Example subject: "Tracking DHL parcel delivery".
- Example content of an e-mail:
