"New wave of portobedrägerier – Postnord warn"
"You have forgotten to pay the postage and your package is left at the terminal. But if you pay 15 crowns sent it."
"So it says in a new scam-text message."
"– It looked so credible, " says Malin Pettersson."
"Just before christmas, sent reams of scam-text message out to the Swedish mobile phone number. Now it is time again."
"When mobile users click on the provided link in their text message, they end up at a search page where the supplied paketnummer should be entered. Then comes a message up that the package is stopped in the Stockholm postal terminal, the lack of payment for postage on the 15 crowns."
"In the next step, you leave your account details to the fraudster."
" I thought I seen wrong on the shipping. So I gave out my credit card details, stupidly. I regret it bitterly now, " she says."
"a Little later in the evening, went to Malin Pettersson on the net again, to check that the package has been sent."
"– But it was the same, that it remained and that there was a debt of sek 15. Then I became a little scared and checked my account. I saw that a transaction on the 772 sek had been completed after the 15 crowns."
"Malin Pettersson reported to the police and blocked their account. Ago, she out a varningspost on his Facebook page."
"– A close friend became a victim of the same thing. Mother waited package from England with flowers and had also received a same sms and I was going to pay. But she called and talked with me before, so she did, " she says."
"Göran Malmgrens 19-year-old son in Hylte is also among the sufferers."
"But it did not, her sister had not shopped online."
"When Göran Malmgren was told if it controlled the son's account. Then, in addition to the 15 crowns, a further 785 kronor missing. He is upset that it has been difficult to come forward to the police to report the crime."
"– There must be a hell of a lot better to investigate when it is still available online and there is a link. The card is blocked, but that you do not get hold of anyone who takes hold of this. This should be in the bank, kreditkortsinstitutens and everyone's interests now that they have this chance and the site is located up there."
"– Are there many young people who are subjected to it here, I mean 800 bucks – verging on a grand – it stings. For this is probably money that my son loses, " says Göran Malmgren."
"– the Post has a logistics system called Track and trace. It was well that they tried to fish for. There are very many who have called us. I would bet on a 50-speech calls the last two days, it has been hard. There are maybe 20 percent that has gone on the hoax, unfortunately. Today only a few dozen have called us. Those we have talked with that have gone on the hoax think that it is embarrassing of course, " says affärsutvecklaren Mattias Sundström at the company."
"– well It is no coincidence that they do this in lönetider either, 15 bucks well no matter, you think."
"At Postnord was noticed by a first wave of portobluffen via sms already in december last year."
" We had a lot of questions about it then. We made sure to put up warning message at postnord.see. To our customers should be paying attention to, " says the company's team of press officers Maria Ibsén."
"She underlines the fact that Postnord never send out the sms if the letter or package is not enough postage."
"– Have you not paid the postage properly so you get a bill for the amount, and solve for its package instead. We also never paid for that we store the mail or packages. It is unfortunately so that in the day you have to be a little suspicious and simply watch an extra time before you click, " she says."
