Fraud Prevention Policy
Our Commitment to Protection
At Abiel Logistics, we take protecting our customers’ sensitive information seriously and are constantly monitoring our information and data to prevent fraudulent or suspicious behavior.
We strive to protect you and encourage you to be aware of any potential fraudulent behavior by malicious parties using the Abiel Logistics brand. Below are some tips for how you can recognize fraud to ensure that sensitive information is kept secure.
Recognize Fraud Recognizing phishing and scam e-mails and other types of communications is key to protecting yourself against fraud and theft. Common warning signs of online scams include:
- Requests for Money: Unexpected requests for money in return for delivery of a package, often with a sense of urgency, and used to trick people into sending money and provide personal information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details.
- Requests for Personal Information: Requests for personal and/or financial information for the purpose of committing theft, identify theft and other crimes.
- Deceptive Domain Names: Links to misspelled or slightly altered website addresses (e.g. abiel.com / abielxpress.org / abiellogisticscourier). If you doubt the integrity of any website using the Abiel Logistics brand, please visit our global website: www.abiellogistics.com
Types of Fraud
Fraudulent Emails and Email Scams: These are the most common online scams. Such emails attempt to trick you by pretending to come from a reputable source, such as from Abiel Logistics (for example from what appears to be an Abiel Logistics email). They will try to get you to share sensitive personal, account information or send a payment. They may also ask you to enroll in winning a prize or entering a competition.
We urge customers to be suspicious of any request not coming directly from an Abiel Logistics employee or domain name.
Identity Theft: This occurs when someone tricks you into disclosing/providing personal, financial or account information. Posing as well-known companies, information thieves usually send out e-mails or contact you by telephone asking you to reply or direct you to a fraudulent web page that asks you to provide personal information, such as your credit card number or account password, or even your Abiel Logistics credentials.
Credit Card Fraud: In some instances, credit card fraud occurs when someone’s physical credit card is lost or stolen by another party who uses it. Credit card fraud is driven primarily by the compromise of credit card account data during their normal course of usage. Stolen credit card data is often used to attempt fraudulent online purchases.
Spam and Viruses: In our industry, customers usually receive an email suggesting that Abiel Logistics is attempting to deliver a package and request that you open the email attachment to prompt the delivery. This attachment may be a computer virus. Unless you are expecting to receive an email like this, please do not open the attachment.
Package Tracking Emails: In some cases, customers receive an email containing a tracking number. This number can be verified by inserting it into the “Track Shipment” box on www.abiellogistic.com . If there are no tracking results returned, it is not a valid tracking number, and Abiel Logistics did not send the email. Please report this email to Abiel Logistics Global Customer Care Center at (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Activation Key: Abiel Logistics will never ask for you activation key over phone or email; for your account’s security, please do not share your key with anyone.

At Abiel Logistics, we recognize industry standards and employs appropriate administrative, technical and physical security safeguards to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use and other unlawful forms of processing.
