I received this today highlighting the premium rate scam emails are ongoing. Last year it was fake interviews, this year it’s parcel delivery spam.
As with the other spam / scam emails, please beware of 0703 numbers (as well as 0706) they are essentially premium rate numbers and will cost a fortune to call from landlines and mobiles. I wish the telco’s would do more to stop this blatent abuse but alas they’re more interested in profit than their customers.
When in doubt check the number or prefix with the internet, the interview scam emails used lots of unique numbers typically in a range so I expect this follows the same method.
