NOTE: The details provided in the above message examples may be impersonated.
If you have got the messages as mentioned above from UPS, DHL or FedEx companies, then you must know that those are fraud messages, not the genuine or legit ones. So, you should not click any link or download anything or follow any instructions provided on those messages. If you follow the instructions provided on those messages, then you may end up losing your personal information which can be used to scam you and steal money from you. If you don't believe us, then you can confirm it by contacting the support team of respective companies (UPS, DHL or FedEx) who will say the same thing.
These kinds of messages from UPS, DHL or FedEx or similar companies about your UPS, FedEx or DHL package with tracking code GB-6412-GH83 are just a few examples of these kinds of phishing messages. However, these scammers can come up with a new way to scam people. So, you should never believe any such messages which claim you have done something without your consent or someone has hacked your personal account or you have won a big amount of money or prizes from some reputed companies out of blue and so on.
In order to confirm the legitimacy of these kinds of messages which are pretended to be from some reputed company, you should contact that reputed company to confirm either that message is really from that company or not. For example, you can contact UPS, DHL or FedEx companies to confirm either your UPS, DHL or FedEx package with tracking code GB-6412-GH83 is really waiting for you to set delivery preferences or not.
Anyway, now you know that these messages are scams, so let's find out what is the motive behind these messages.
The main motive of these cybercriminals is to get your personal information as well as to steal your money by tricking you. They can make money by selling your personal information like email address, ID details, financial details and so on to the third parties and make money from that. That's why they always ask you to send your personal details in those messages or click some link or download something from where they can hack your those personal information.
Never provide your credit card information to these kinds of cybercriminals. Once cybercriminals find your credit card details, they will charge your credit card randomly without your consent until your credit card runs out of money. So, if you have already provided your credit card information mistakenly to any of these cybercriminals, we suggest you immediately contact your bank or credit card company and tell them to cancel your credit card and provide you the new one.
These kinds of messages may also contain some files attached to them or links to click there. Never ever download such files from such messages because those may contain some spyware, malware or virus which can harm your device or even can hack your device to get your personal information. Also, never click any link provided in such messages because when you click such links and visit some websites, then such websites also may contain some spyware or malware or viruses that can harm your device.
These cybercriminals will also try to steal the money from potential victims by asking them to send some money to pay some fees to get those gifts and prizes. However, if you send them your money, they will just vanish with your money. So, never ever send any money to them. Real companies will never ask you to send any money to pay some fees or tax to get the gifts, prizes or winning amounts. Instead, they will cut the necessary fees just from your winning amount and send you the remaining balance. So, all companies which ask you to pay money first to send you some gifts or prizes or winning amounts are scams.
Actually, you should not follow any instructions provided in such scam messages. Instead, you should just delete them. If you get confused either such message is a scam or from a real company, then you should directly contact the main company or visit the official website of the main company and login there to check the details but never visit any website by clicking the link provided on such messages.
