I had had the message from a nice furniture shop stating that a respected delivery firm was going to deliver a parcel to me the next day. I checked the store number on line and rang them, then I did the same with the delivery firm. Both told me it was not them and was probably a scam. Told me to delete the text.
On the bottom of the text was a message 'if you will not be at home ' and a place to click, probably for my name and address. I did not cluck on the link.
The next day, there was another text telling me that a named man would deliver my parcel ar a certain time with the same link
Has anyone received this?
I have to admit that I was a bit scared when the delivery time they quoted arrived but nothing happened

I look at everything I receive via text as a scam unless I've actually ordered something. I'd still wouldn't open that either. I check my order on the site and track it.

sorry about that it is pretty scary

i think it is the times in which we live - we gave odd jobs and garden clearance to an unemployed neighbour
and all that happened
was - - we let himi into the property so he could see what was worth stealing later on that week

terribly depressing - we did this to ourselves
Peter, that's dreadful.

Bobbie, I agree with Ummmm view all with doubt and double check,as you did.
It might be a scam or it may be someone has mistyped a phone number. Either way, unless the text has specified it's your address then just ignore it now as you've done all you can. Let us know if someone turns up.

Thanks for your replies. Luckily nothing happened.
If you hadn't ordered any furniture surely it was obviously a scam. No?

Maybe I am not as smart as you Zacs master. I was a bit worried and scared in case anyone turned up

They had my phone number, and they could have had my address
