I think it is a shame that these e-mails give the companies a bad name, when obviously it isn't DHL sending the e-mails out.  The give away is that they come out in clusters with sequential reference numbers.

Are the companies not able to do anything about them?
Also what is the point of them?

No, there is no way for the real companies to stop these fake spam emails.

@Madlot - how do you propose such a company does something about it? I can send email pretending to be anyone in the world.

phising

confirming that you are a real person for other spammers

getting personal details for identity theft and bank details for fraud.

Plenty of people out there who are unwise to these things.

Davids Mother was sending out cheques and cash to companies sending her bogus bills and threatening letters. She was losing her marbles a bit, old, frightened and being taken advantage of. When we went through her house I went through every letter and envelope carefully and found over £100. That was after finding a £10 in one envelope while David's bro was just chucking everything out.

I wasn't proposing anything, I was asking a question.

Some of them have attachments with the "delivery details" that are viruses.

Some ask you to phone an expensive phone number to confirm details.

Some will ask for address confirmation for identity theft.

All of them are malicious and should be deleted without opening (unless you are waiting for a parcel AND have given a courier your e-mail address...................)
