    Is this a genuine text from AnPost? Never had a text from them before.

    Grammar is wrong “in up to 3working days’ and paid is spelled payed so I would say it’s a fake

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,215 ✭✭✭✭Suckit

    And ..

    I doubt AnPost own

    None of the links on top of the page work.

    It was registered 5 days ago.

    Fake URL in that picture also and grammar all wrong as already mentioned

    It's a scam.

    It's not an AnPost website.

    Did you have a parcel due to arrive?

    The tracking number is fake, but if you had a parcel due to arrive, that would be a noticeable coincidence.

    Scam. Badly worded and bad spelling.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,052 ✭✭✭CollyFlower

    Thanks all. I thought it was suspicious alright. No sign of the tracking number when I typed it into their website. I only have one package I'm waiting on.

    I would be using something like Malwarebytes to be scanning any device used to click on a known fake link. You could have all sorts of malware or viruses on it now. Or you could have got lucky and have nothing on it.

    Don't expect anything from life, just be grateful to be alive.

    It's funny all the effort they go to scam and then make a complete bollix of the small details, they should have spent the few extra getting someone with local knowledge to advise.

    It's deliberate. They only want the dumbest of the dumb to be hooked in. Anyone not thar stupid will waste the scammers' time.

    Seems that way alright, lately when I try to drag them out through a 20 minute call to laugh at them being inbred clowns from a backward as fook kip of a place that should be leveled by nukes they put the phone down.
