Warwickshire Trading Standards are warning residents to beware of emails that carry the words ‘Unclaimed Parcel’ or similar. These bogus emails, which typically are not addressed directly to the recipient, but instead use their email address, encourage the recipient to click on a link to ‘Activate’ their delivery. There is also often a reference to the potential ‘value’ of the package, which is usually very high.
Clicking on links in bogus emails can expose your PC to viruses. NEVER click on a link or download an attachment in a suspicious email. Always DELETE them.
