Fake Evri delivery text scam

Delivery company Evri, formerly Hermes, is being impersonated by fraudsters asking for bank details to pay a fake delivery fee. It asks the recipient to visit a website to pay a £1.45 shipping fee, and if they don’t pay, the parcel will be returned to the sender.

It’s likely that the scammers are mass targeting victims. However, it can be persuasive if you’re waiting for a package to arrive. We have screenshots of what the scam text looks like and what to do if you receive one.
