Drug Dealers and Criminals Using Same Day Couriers

Drug Dealers and Criminals are Using Same Day Courier Service


Drug dealers, criminals and gangs have started using same day couriers to move drugs, illegal items and contraband around the country.  As the delivery company will never open packages that it is carrying, this is now an easy option for the criminals to start using.

How to tell if your same day courier booking is not a scam

First off, you will be able to sense if something is wrong, look for the signs:

  • Caller with-held ID.
  • Caller wants to pay by card over the phone and insists, usually one of the first things they ask is "can i pay for my courier with a card over the phone".
  • Customer refuses to give you an email address.
  • Collection is from a plumbers merchant, electrical supplier or other trade counter.  Usually the goods you are collecting are also paid by a stolen credit or debit card.
  • You have been asked to collect a bag, suitcase or box from a residential address and to deliver to another residential address not far away.
  • The criminals most likely never query the price, they just need the goods collecting and delivering..

If your a same day courier company, what you can do to avoid being scammed criminals

  • Ask for a landline number and call it back.
  • Get their mobile number and call it back.
  • If possible always ask for payment by a trusted provider, such as PayPal, Worldpay, Stripe, Sage etc.  These will be all 3D secure.
  • If any card validation fails, then decline the same day delivery.
  • Don't take payments over the phone.
  • If customer asks to meet your courier in the street, then this is a no.  The criminals have waiting vehicles to take the goods and then never to be found.
  • Call the company you are collecting from, ask them if the customer is regular or if they know them.
The most important rule in avoiding being scammed is:  If you have a gut feeling that something is wrong, then most likely it will go wrong

Educate your staff and tell them of the signs to look out for, if you are a same day courier and have been scammed, tell other couriers.  Write in forums and make our industry safe.

There is also other types of courier fraud, for more information or to report a fraud call the police or visit the Action Fraud.

  • You get calls from companies wanting to sell you something you do not need, but the company calling tells you that you have made the enquiry.
What to do in such an event
  • Ask the company for the IP address log from the enquiry
  • Find out the time and date of the enquiry from the company, they will have a form submission date stamp.
  • Tell the company of such bad activity from the said IP address and have them blocked.
