I got an email supposedly from DPD today. It's yet another scam.

This is taken from the real DPD website so you can get a better idea of the scam.

We had one of those about three weeks ago. Quickly deleted.

Apparently we are due a delivery from UPS, it didn’t arrive yesterday and another email last night says that it will delivered today, complete with a tracking number, obviously we haven’t ordered anything and the email doesn’t say where the goods are coming from.

Are they expecting us to call the number provided? Otherwise I can’t see how a scam might work

Had the DPD one yesterday.
It was just deleted as there is always someone in my house to receive parcels.
