‘Chronopost’ scam, beware

I received an email said to be from Chronopost requesting confirmation of address for a package they had in my name.

The instruction was to call a number to receive a code. I was to call up to four times, billed at premium rate. After three calls (€3x3 = €9) I contacted my wife in the UK to find she had no knowledge of a package, or Chronopost’s involvement.

I have sent the email to Chronopost’s fraud service.
