I had an SMS yesterday, in Spanish, purporting to be from Correos which I thought looked a bit odd. It said the I had to pay €1.79 for a packet they were waiting to deliver to me and very kindly supplied a link for me to pay the amount by credit or debit card prior to them making delivery.

Needless to say, this is nothing more than a scammer. If you receive this on your mobile, delete it immediately. Do not pay any money, they will then use your bank details to clean out your account, no doubt. 

If you are in any doubt, refer to Correos at your local office before doing anything

I should give them my details because I've not got any money in my account haha. Might wait their time and annoy them in process whilest hopefully stopping having the time to con someone else. I do the same to spam emails haha
