I got this message earlier. I didn't click on the link.

I do a lot of my shopping online but I didn't receive an mail lately with a dispatch information and DHL.

I can't really figure out what purchase this would be. I think the only thing I am waiting on is a package from ASOS. I doubt that will be with me so soon. It gave me an estimate of next week for delivery.

I wonder if this is a scam?

The number is from what looks like a mobile number. I never got an email or message with tracking number for DHL so this looks dodgy to me.

I just want to double check with others here.

Yes. 100% scam

Scam - you'll need to include card details to pay for redelivery or some such and they'll use those details to buy other things you'll be paying for.

Definitely a scam there are loads of them in the last year or so it seems to me anyway.

Absolutely a scam. There are similar ones in Australia that even use the real Australia Post logo.

I've had a royal mail version of OP's scam msg.

Thanks for the replies and for the reassurances that it's a scam. I was thinking that because I never received any email with dispatch and shipping with DHL.

Definitely a scam - just forward to 7726 for spam reporting. I've had several of these.

I just had another this morning! “Aus Post is holding your mail because wrong address was supplied”. Bollocks it was.

I find loads of them in my spam folders. All variations of the same thing.
