I received a suspicious text message or email, allegedly from bpost. What should I do?
ou may receive an email or text message that appears to be from bpost. It might look real, but it was not sent by us. These emails or texts are fraudulent messages, also known as phishing, sent by scammers. The following tips will help you recognize phishing and will inform you about what to do with these types of messages.
Do not believe every text message or e-mail and don't just enter your personal details
First of all, ask yourself whether you are expecting a parcel. For shipments within the EU, bpost will never ask you to pay when your parcel is in transit (e.g. to avoid extra costs), or to provide personal information by e-mail or text message. Furthermore, bpost will never threaten to send a bailiff if you don't pay for your parcel.
Only enter personal details if you are 100% sure that you are dealing with bpost. We will never ask you for personal information via e-mail or text message.
Check the web address
A fraudulent email or text message usually contains a link or button that goes to an untrustworthy website. You can check the URL by hovering over the link with your mouse. The web address will then appear at the bottom left of your browser. If you do not recognize the address immediately, do not click the link.
Help prevent phishing
Forward suspicious messages to firstname.lastname@example.org. This way, you will help prevent others from becoming victims of scammers.
