On Monday, March 22nd, 2021, there was fraud in the Neuenkirchen-Vorden area. A 26-year-old woman received a text message on her mobile phone stating that a parcel was about to be delivered.

Police advise against clicking on these links. The message must be deleted from the device. Do not allow the installation of unknown applications. It is also recommended that your carrier set up a third-party block so that additional costs can be avoided. If you click on the link anyway, it is recommended that you switch the device to airplane mode so that the mobile phone cannot receive any external commands anymore. Then the device must be reset to factory settings so that harmful apps will be removed. If necessary, it is recommended to make a backup copy of the personal data beforehand. You should also verify the logins and passwords for your user accounts.
