Scammers are sending the Local Depot Status scam text below with a link to the phishing website: local-depot-status.com. The phishing website purports to be the UK Post Office and claims a package needs to be redelivered. It then requests a fee of £1.45 for the re-delivery and requests your credit card details and security code. But, if the requested information is sent, it will be used fraudulently.

    I too am expecting a parcel, I received the same txt message while our shopping, again from Kieran, phone number 447821224258, I scrolled through the pages, answering the questions until I got to the pay page asking for bank details ands a payment of £1.45, that's when I got suspicious and didn't go any further as I know you usually don't have to pay for re-delivery.

    I never thought I would be taken in by something like this but it was very convincing, now I just feel stupid!

    Received today - Kieran tried to deliver your shipment today, but no one was home. To re-organise a new date for this, please visit:https://local-depot-gb.co.uk

    The phone number this came from was - 447526411770

    As I scrolled through the pages to arrange a redelivery (I am expecting several deliveries), I was prompted to provide my postcode, full name, delivery address, and email address, then the next page occures, stating that the item is found, and the status is in transit, it then askes for date o birth and mobile phone number befor you have to hit the continue button, then a dropdown menu asks for a new delivery address, it then tells you the redelivery charge is £1.45, and askes you to input all your card details.

    For what it's worth, I got as far as the card details page before I became suspicious and stopped, I then rang the number to complain about the Post Office trying to charge for redelivery, all I got was a Tesco answering service, still thinking I was dealing with the Post Office, I left my name and address asking them to call back and explain.

    A few minuites after hanging up I, the penny dropped, and I checked on line and found this site, at least I did not give my card details, but they got everything else, the site pages were very convincing, and had I not been expecting deliverys, I like to think I would not have been so easily taken in!
