Australians have been warned about a phishing email pretending to be from DHL in yet another scam spoofing the shipping company.

Email security software platform MailGuard said it had intercepted a fraudulent email utilising DHL’s brand and logo asking users to click a link to “complete the payment of (1.99 EUR)”.

The MailGuard alert comes mere days after cybersecurity firm Avast flagged an SMS scam spoofing the global parcel delivery company that has already infected 60,000 devices worldwide.

The scam intercepted by MailGuard reads: “Dear Customer, Thank you for using DHL Express, your package is waiting for you. You must complete the payment of (1.99 EUR).

“Follow the safe link below to complete payment of your shipping fees. Expected delivery date: 26 August before the end of the working day. Best regards.”

Following the instructions is a red button that says “PAY”.
