Latvian postal service warns again about online fraudsters

Latvia's state-owned postal delivery service, Latvijas Pasts (LP) has issued a second warning about criminals attempting to defraud people by means of bogus postal delivery notifications.

Following on from another recent warning about frauds on social networks, as previousy reported by LSM, the latest alert concerns fake e-mail notifications. 

"We urge our customers to take care – there is currently a new type of fraudulent email activity, when customers receive fraudulent messages asking them to make a payment to confirm the delivery of a shipment. Never open a link when receiving suspicious messages!" LP tweeted.

LP added that it was informing the national cybercrime agency of the attempts to scam customers.

"When you receive a suspicious message, do not open the link, be sure to check the sender’s e-mail address and under no circumstances give your personal information to fraudsters. Latvijas Pasts e-mail address and websites always end with pasts.lv — everything else can be considered fake notifications," LP said.
 
If you want to ceck the veracity of any notification you can do so via the Latvijas Pasts Customer Centre: +371 67008001, +371 27008001 and [email protected].
