    • Check the sender's address in messages that encourage you to do things like your bank account, online purchases, or shipment (tracking your shipment, redirecting it to another address, surcharge, invoice collection).
    • Don't open attachments from unreliable sources (such as email or instant messaging) and don't click on suspicious links.
    • Double-check website addresses as well as their certificates.

      - The web address should be preceded by a closed padlock symbol and start with the https://.
      - When making payments, the name of the selected bank or payment operator should be in the address bar of the page.

    • Use complex passwords that will be difficult for bystanders to guess. Change your passwords regularly.
    • Don't use the same password for different accounts and don't save passwords to cards or files on your computer.
    • Don't give or send your logins or passwords to anyone else.
    • Do not log in to online banking services from public, unsecured wi-fi networks.
    • Read sms receipts before committing a transaction.
    • Regularly update your system, applications, browser, and antivirus software.
    • Don't connect external data carriers to your hardware that you're not sure about.

Then the waves of fake emails and sms, which senders impersonate online stores and courier companies, intensify. These messages are designed to steal your bank account login information and infect computers or phones with malware.

  • If you got a paid cash on delivery package:

    1. Validate the data in the shipper and recipient field – make sure it's the shipment you ordered
    2. Check the download amount and make sure it matches your order

    If non-compliance is found, refuse to accept the shipment and do not pay the fee.

    Notify the courier of the reason why you are refusing to accept the picking shipment.
