Attempts to defraud through various online shopping portals are becoming more common. In some cases, DPD is also mentioned as a delivery service used to send money and / or goods.
IMPORTANT: DPD expressly wishes to point out that this represents a misuse of the DPD brand and is attempted fraud. DPD accepts no responsibility for any damage which arises from such attempts at fraud.
Be careful who you give your card details to and where you enter them - they are only needed when you are paying online. The only information that the person who wants to pay you can justifiably ask for and are required for payment are: IBAN / account number and the name of the recipient.
Fraudsters try to steal this valuable data in various ways. With the aim of fraud, they can present themselves as an interested buyer who wants to make a payment or as a seller seeking an advance as a guarantee for the sale. It is always about collecting data: name and surname, card number, until when it is valid and a three-digit number (CVV), and often they ask for your personal data in addition to the stated data.
Scammers try to steal data using all digital channels, and you will recognize the attempt if:
They ask for a copy / scan of your card or ID card.
They ask you to send them card information by message.
You get a link to an unknown page asking you to enter your personal and card information.
If you have been the victim of such an attempted fraud and sent copies of your cards or entered the card details on a fake page, be sure to inform the competent bank that issued the card, so that its further use is prevented by the fraudster.
