Mallorca residents find plenty of phish in the sea

BALEARES residents are amongst those complaining about a phishing scam camouflaged as a Correos notification.
It might be an email bearing the logo used by Spain’s postal service.  Or it could be a text message, but both will be requesting an insignificant sum – rarely much over €2 – for a delivery charge on a parcel.
The emails look particularly authentic, with a long reference number as well as the Correos logo and occasionally a PDF file.
There will be a link to click on to effect payment but, as victims have discovered, this is just another variation on learning – and stealing – the target’s name, address and bank details.
