Cyber frauds during holiday season

15. December 2023

December being traditionally a month of holiday shopping and increased volumes of posted items, it is also a time of a growing number of cyber threat attempts. The National CERT of the Republic of Serbia therefore warns the citizens about current SMS phishing frauds targeting the users of postal services in this time of the year.

The attackers usually initiate the fraud by sending an SMS or text, containing an information about an unsuccessful postal item delivery attempt, along with a link to confirm address details. By clicking on the link, the victim is transferred to a fake web page of the PE Post of Serbia, where they are asked to enter personal information and credit card data. Disclosure of these personal data on the fake web page enables the attackers to clear the victim’s bank account.

The National CERT urges the citizens not to click on links contained in messages from unknown senders and to report similar incidents, in case they were defrauded.
