In my spam folder from Amazon.co.uk, telling me they have despatched my package no mention of what was in package. Amazing as i havn't ordered anything. I sent an E Mail back saying I havn't ordered anything from them and if they send anything i will keep it so please don't send anything. Just had another E Mail from a company calling themselves UPS INC saying they have tried to deliver a package yesterday at 8 am and we wern't in. We were in at 8am but no one tried to deliver anything,sounds like some kind of a scam but i don't know how or what they are trying on. Anyone else had this occurance??? from Auntie.

They may well give you an 090 number to ring to arrange collection. This will cost you about £50 so bin it.

Delete it, obviously a scam and the worst thing you could do is reply to it.

Strangely enough I had an email from Amazon earlier this week asking me to check certain security details.
My account was, supposedly, temporarily locked so needed immediate action !

This is a well known scam trying to get login and security info from people.

My advice is - if in doubt, then delete.

Totally agree with replies above.............do not respond in any way, delete them. I get 20-50 spam emails a day some of them will be like the ones your getting. I click on the go away button.

Spammers are really annoying scumbags...as I was reading this thread this text came through:

Stop Payday loan repayments TODAY! Get a payment plan from £80 per month for ALL your debts! Visit http://bit.ly/idpsms now. 2OptOut Txt STOP

I am tempted to try to string them along but don't fancy the hassle...
