What Is Evri Missed Delivery Scam Text
People have been receiving texts informing them that they missed their delivery from Evri. They message reads this way:
Do You Know You Could Get Back Your Money If You Have Been Scammed? Great News! Click HERE to Get Started
Evri: We attempted to deliver your EVRi parcel GBB0783K4TRV today but no one was home. Please follow: https://evri-support-parcel.com to request a redelivery.
But this is a scam text we have seen countless times, and we know how it works.
How It Works
The Evri shipping scam text informs the reader that their delivery was missed. A link is then provided where the person can rearrange for delivery. Their aim is to pretend they want to help you to resolve the problem, but don’t be deceived; these people are scammers.
In the course of clicking that link, you will be asked to pay a fee, and you will input your credit card details into their system, handing them the information they need to steal money from your card. Doing this will be giving up your credit card information to thieves.
What To Do
When you receive such messages and want to be sure it is not scam, do the following:
- send the delivery company an email to confirm the authenticity of the text
- if the company says the message is not from them, delete the message immediately
- do not, out of curiosity, click the link or call that number to see where it leads
Phishing scams are on the rise these days, and a lot of people have lost sensitive information to hackers. Evri has released a statement addressing this problem. Please stay away from strange texts prompting you to give up your personal information.
We have come across scams like this a lot. What you have to do firstly is not to click on links you do not understand or call strange numbers, and always be sure the source of the message is genuine before you engage.
