Local Depot 26 Scam UK Post Office Text - local-depot26.com

Scammers are sending the Local Depot 26 scam text below with a link to the phishing website local-depot26.com. The phishing website purports to be the UK Post Office and claims there was an attempt to deliver a parcel but no one was in. It then requests a fee 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.

    received same text - deleted

  • June 28, 2022 at 6:39 AM by an anonymous user from: SE1, London, England, United Kingdom

    Received the same text saying that Sam tried to deliver a package etc.

    PO either in times of covid leave a package in the porch or put a card through the door. This is the second attempt to get money out of me in two months.

  • June 28, 2022 at 2:37 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    Received same message except the name was 'Sam' not 'Jamie'. Immediately deleted it.

  • June 28, 2022 at 2:17 AM by an anonymous user from: Greater London, England, United Kingdom

    Received this:

    ᴘᴏꜱᴛ ᴏꜰꜰɪᴄᴇ: Sam tried to deIiver your parceI yesterday, but no one answered. local-depot26.com to rebook.

    I clicked on link and did enter my email address, date of birth and address, but when it asked for money, realised it’s a scam, as the post office don’t charge for re delivery. So I didn’t enter my card details, but they may be able to use my other details fraudulently somehow.

    I replied to the text before I realised it was a scam, that won’t cost me money will it?

      No, not unless you click the link and submit your financial information on the phishing website you will be taken to.

  • June 27, 2022 at 3:12 PM by an anonymous user from: Salford, England, United Kingdom

    I also got a message just like the above Monday 27 June 2022 at 20:54 with local-depot26.com address in it purporting to be from 'Sam' who apparently tried to deliver a parcel to me today from the Post Office. Unfortunately, for them, I've been at home ALL DAY so I wouldn't have missed him and I actually saw him putting my post through my letter box and he didn't knock or try to get my attention because he had a parcel for me. These bXXXXXXs need to be shut down! The number of texts, emails etc I get from scammers is b****y ridiculous now. What I'm more concerned about is those that actually fall for it and give out their details. Anyway, obviously scammers are still active in relation to the Post Office.

  • June 27, 2022 at 2:51 PM by an anonymous user from: Greater London, England, United Kingdom

    Exactly the same SMS message except my mysterious deliver guy/girl was called Sam! Hate these things. I always Google them and straight away see that it’s a scam.

    Local-depot 26 = scam!

    Got this today 1037. Took me to website where I immediately had to start entering details. Put in made up stuff and it sequentially demanded my postcode at which it did a “searching for branch” and showed me a map of uk with a blob highlighted, then wanted address, email, date of birth and mobile number. It did a “searching for parcel” and then said a redelivery fee of £1.20 so demanded my card details.

    Could be quite easy to fall for it so I hope someone shuts this down.

    Just had the same text. I am expecting something so googled the linka nd went straight to what appeared to be a genuine PO website. I put my name DOB and address in an dthen when it went to paytment, then I realised scam.. PO never asks for payment for re-delivery. Alot of people outhere not as sharp as me so I expect many will fall for it.

  • June 22, 2022 at 5:55 AM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

    Adam tried to deliver your parcel toda yat 8:56p.m...etc. Interestingly I was ACTUALLY out at the time and expecting something. Bizarrely I was on the phone and my phone started ringing the number the text had come from whilst I was on the phone to someone else. Sure enough, it's a scam, but is it coincidence Hermes were supposed to be delivering to me?

    Just received this and as I was expecting a delivery I nearly got sucked in. Stopped when they wanted money for redelivery.

    Received this text and was suspicious from the start, claiming to come from the post office rather than Royal Mail was not a good sign, they then request name, age, address to identify delivery. Next the real issue, they start asking for payment details. Killed the session immediately. No delivery service should be demanding this especially the Royal Mail.
