Beware of fraudsters: Customs do not require payment via prepaid payment service providers

Saarbrücken (ots) - At the moment, there are more and more information from attentive citizens at customs that fraudulent e-mails with the sender address of a postal service provider are in circulation. Customs and tax payments are requested by email using anonymous prepaid payment service providers.
