Shipping Scams of the Week | BHL and USPS

Shipping Scams of the Week | BHL and USPS

 

 

We all love shopping online, from gadgets and clothes to home essentials and appliances. Nothing can make our days brighter when we received our parcels. The hassle-free of having it delivered right in front of our doorstep is a major convenience! 

 

This week our Trend Micro Check Team discovered two new parcel shipping scams that we should watch out for!

 

BHL Shipping Scam

 

The reason it sounds and looks familiar is that the scammers are faking the DHL company brand — they even use its colors, logo, and web design.

If you follow the phishing link, you will be directed to a fake webpage and it will ask for your personal info and the details of your parcel.  (URL: xanthinetruck[.]com)

USPS Shipping Scam

 

There are also reports of scammers posing as USPS. You will receive an email claiming that a parcel has been blocked.
