Not sure if this has been flagged before but no harm reminding people anyway.

A young neighbour got an email last week supposedly from a well known national courier company, it had their logo address etc.

The email said they had tried to deliver a package, it could now be collected from their depot, or for a fee of €2.40 they would try again, click here to pay.

Like many at the moment packages were expected, it’s only €2.40 so the link was clicked, card number entered and the modest amount paid.

They tried to take over €900, it failed as there was not that much in the account and never is.

The bank made contact inquiring if it was authorised.

Received an email yesterday from DPD about a package. Wasn't expecting one. Could see in the preview it started with "Dear Valued Customer...", so was suspected it was a scam. Couriers normally contact by phone.
The email was flagged as spam by Gmail. I've now received another one from UPS, again flagged as spam.

Why don't the authorities prosecute them?
They do occasionally, but it's a challenge due to the cross-border nature of most of these, and the fact that very few people actually report them.
