ELTA email fraud: Phishing email asks you to pay!


An email with ELTA to be the hypothetical sender and object of parcel delivery, received several Internet users. It states that it is not possible to deliver the parcel because a duty of € 2,10 has not been paid, while there is also an internal link, which the user is asked to click to pay this small amount.

To make them even more convincing, the online scammers emphasize that if the parcel is not received within 30 days then they will have to be compensated € 0,49.

On this subject, ELTA is asking from citizens not to open this email at all and to delete it immediately from their e-mail.

SecNews warns you not to open links from such emails as they carry the risk of being accepted hacking attack and the malicious user to gain unauthorized access to email accounts, social media accounts, banking application codes and sensitive personal data.
