This is how they try to deceive citizens by pretending to be the Post Office

The Department of Postal Services (Cyprus Post) informs the public that recently there have been increased reports of sending misleading phishing messages to mobile phone users, specifically regarding the correction of address information.

Phishing is an act of deceiving internet users in which the sender impersonates a trusted entity, organization or person who invites the recipient of the message to follow the instructions given to them.

These instructions may ask the recipient to follow an electronic link and/or provide their data, such as sensitive private information, passwords, ID or passport details, bank account, bank card and others.

Citizens are urged to be especially careful, no matter how plausible the sender or the messages they receive may seem, so that they do not fall victim to fraudsters who act in this way.

Finally, please note that payments are not directed to JCCSmart's online payment platform, but to another email address.
