Fraud attempts in the name of the customs administration
Over the last few days an increasing number of e-mails have been reported referring to alleged parcel delivery and requesting a fee payment. For the payment, you are asked to purchase a Paysafecard and send the code to an e-mail address. The e-mail address of the fraudsters is hidden behind the seemingly official address, e.g. that of the Customs Administration. Ignore these e-mails.

They threaten to publish compromising films and images if you do not pay a ransom in bitcoin. This is just a bluff. Do not be intimidated and ignore these fake sextortion emails.
