Fraud Awareness and Prevention
Fraud Awareness is critical, and SpeedLink encourages anyone who receives an unsolicited email appearing to be from SpeedLink to question its integrity before opening any attachments, clicking any links or venturing into any further transactions
Fraudulent Use of the SpeedLink Brand
Attempts have been made to defraud Internet shoppers by the unauthorised use of the SpeedLink name and brand via email communications and graphics which appear, on the surface, to have originated from SpeedLink.
In most cases the communications concern the sale of consumer goods over the Internet where payment may be requested before the goods are delivered.
Please be advised that SpeedLink does not request payment in this manner. SpeedLink only collects money due for official SpeedLink related shipping expenses.
This security notice does not affect the obligation of a consignee to pay shipping, customs, VAT or similar charges, where these are properly payable at the time of delivery.
SpeedLink accepts no responsibility for any costs, charges or payments made which were improperly incurred as a result of fraudulent activity.
Waybill and Luggage Fraud Awareness
Have you been contacted by someone claiming to be from Speedlink using a Gmail email address similar to firstname.lastname@example.org ? If you have, and they claim to have a piece of luggage containing high value goods - and the are asking for over $1000 USD - It's more than likely a scam.
DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY! And NEVER use Western Union to send cash to someone you do not know.
The above image is a fraudulent document. Have nothing to do with the individual who sent this to you.
Spam and Viruses
Please be advised that if you received an email suggesting that SpeedLink is attempting to deliver a package requesting that you open the email attachment in order to affect delivery, this email is fraudulent, the package does not exist and the attachment may be a computer virus.
Please do not open the attachment or click any links. This email and attachment do not originate from SpeedLink.
