Flubot - Has it evolved?

Has flu bot changed their scam messages from a voicemail waiting for retrieval to now sending messages about parcels waiting for delivery? I have been receiving a lot of these messages about a parcel to delivery from different numbers in the last week whereas before last week I received none.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Flubot - Has it evolved?

That's an older tactic, but it's quite possible that they've changed to that. Always pays to be careful.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Some of the Flubot SMSs will claim to be from DHL or that you have an “ePacket” or parcel on its way.
