Attempted online shopping frauds involving the unauthorised use of the DHL name and brand are frequent occurrences. They usually involve emails and graphics that give the impression that they originate from DHL.
They mostly concern online purchases of goods where payment is required before the goods are delivered.
Phishing refers to the method used by fraudsters to attempt to obtain sensitive data such as passwords or payment information. They attempt to entice victims to fraudulent websites which appear deceptively genuine and where they can then capture their data.
Criminals now use phishing across all channels. Always be vigilant and follow DHL's guidelines for combating fraud.
No one is even safe from fraud involving counterfeit Deutsche Post and DHL products. You should therefore ensure that you only purchase our products via our official sales channels.
