We see lots of phishing attempts for email and other credentials. This one pretends to be a message from DHL about confirming your delivery address.
They use email addresses and subjects that will entice, persuade, shock or scare a user to read the email and follow the links or open the attachment. A very high proportion are being targeted at small and medium size businesses, with the hope of getting a better response than they do from consumers.
You can now submit suspicious sites, emails and files via our Submissions system
Remember many email clients, especially on a mobile phone or tablet, only show the Name in the From: and not the bit in <domain.com >. That is why these scams and phishes work so well.
The email looks like:
From: DHL Express <email@example.com>
Date: Thu 01/03/2018 08:24
Subject: Re Re:Confirm Your Delivery Details.
DHL Express Dear Customer,
Due to several cases of parcel misplacement we have experienced recently,
It is now mandatory that we confirm delivery address from beneficiary before final delivery.
Kindly Re confirm your delivery address to ensure safe delivery.

If you follow the link in the email you see a webpage looking like this: http://mannysmexicangrille.com/Dhl/DHLfirstname.lastname@example.org
After you input your email address and password, you get told incorrect details and forwarded to a almost identical looking page where you can put it in again. After doing this you get sent to an address and phone number page
Then you get sent to this error page, which automatically redirects you to the genuine DHL home page after a few seconds
We all get very blasé about phishing and think we know so much that we will never fall for a phishing attempt. Don’t assume that all attempts are obvious. Watch for any site that invites you to enter ANY personal or financial information. It might be an email that says “you have won a prize” or “sign up to this website for discounts, prizes and special offers”
Please read our How to protect yourselves page for simple, sensible advice on how to avoid being infected by this sort of socially engineered malware.
All of these emails use Social engineering tricks to persuade you to follow the links or open the attachments that come with the email. Whether it is a message saying “look at this picture of me I took last night” and it appears to come from a friend or is more targeted at somebody who regularly is likely to receive PDF attachments or Word .doc attachments or any other common file that you use every day. Or whether it is a straight forward attempt, like this one, to steal your personal, bank, credit card or email and social networking log in details. Be very careful when unzipping them and make sure you have “show known file extensions enabled“, And then look carefully at the unzipped file. If it says .EXE then it is a problem and should not be run or opened.
