The Post Office is being plagued by scams and representatives have issued a warning to users to remain vigilant.

The latest scam, as before, seems to come from the Post Office, but is designed to make the receiver pay money into a scam account.

“The email is titled ‘Your package could not be delivered’ and states that a package can only be released once a clearance fee has been paid and includes a link,” Johan Kruger, a spokesperson, explains.

“Should the receiver click on the link, a page called Bureau de Poste d’Afrique du Sud opens, requesting payment to ‘release’ the fictitious parcel.”

Kruger says the official language of communication for the South African Post Office is English, and no communication is done in French. “The website features a photo of the gable of the historic Vredefort post office in the Free State.”

Kruger says the Post Office never asks for import duties or clearance fees in advance. “If there are customs fees payable on a parcel from abroad, the client pays the fees when they collect the parcel from the Post Office counter.”

If you have any information about postal crimes, please contact the Post Office’s toll-free crime buster hotline on 0800 020 070.
