Gardaí have issued another warning about a scam targetting customers awaiting delivery of online shopping.
The scam, which relates to emails pretending to be from DPD Ireland, asks people for payment for a parcel delivery.
“This email will state that your package is being held at the depot until a small fee is paid to release same,” said a garda spokesperson.
“Should you receive an email such as this which appears to be from any courier service, please do not pay the fee. Do not click on any links contained within the email and do not supply any personal/financial information.
“Simply delete the email. Should anyone have already fallen victim to this scam, please alert Gardaí and also your financial institution immediately.”
