If it is a fake disguised as a legit firm, email the firms cs your screen shot with your concerns. Probably a long shot but they may help.
Just mark it as spam.
99% spam, just check the email, its probably a bunch of numbers and letters.
Spam, no consignment number, text message received to your phone, and the Track Now box wouldn't be in an email.

This doesn't look like any email I've received from DHL before either.
Definitely spam I clicked the link & it went to a page wanting my dob then from there my address (I faked it all) then on to pages of complete c**p competitions etc...

Yep, clicking on the link was a mistake as they could get a virus now.
Create a rule with your email provider to auto delete the sender's email address (or the same text featured in the message) and not send it to spam.

You have just clicked yourself into the spammer's "active recipient" list that will now be sold on to more spammers.
It could be a private investigator just trying to get your details

How will I identify I have a virus on my iPhone?

The click-thru you made tells the spammer that your email address is active. Your email address then becomes a spam / spoof magnet cos the spammer knows you read spam / spoof messages, and your "I read spam messages" email address is worth more when sold on than an email address that has no click-thru record. No personal details required.

Is it worth deactivating the email address??

Assuming you are not using a VPN, your click-thru shows your approximate location, your browser (so can tell if PC / Android / IOS / Linux / etc), the time of day you read email, etc. These details form a profile of you regardless of your personal details. A shrewd spammer will now tailor future messages with seemingly attractive (but likely spoofed) special offers for iphone users in YourTownVille and send their spam/spoof messages at a time when you are known to read them, complete with expolits aimed at your specific hardware.
Really?? Even though I do not have my location on.

No drama. Just utilise a decent spam/exploit filter and/or foward all your mail to a service that has excellent native spam/exploit filtering (e.g. gmail) and read your (legitimate) email via the forwarded service.

Your approx location has been identified by your IP address that is recorded when you visit the destination of the click-thru.

Cheers for your knowledge on this matter, much appreciated & I now know what an idiot I must look to you all haha...

Not sure, probably best to run a few anti-virus scans but they are not 100% effective. Next time, don't click through unsolicited links as there is the risk that clicking the link will take you to a malicious site that will download malware onto your device.

You should have just left it, I love typos when they turn out fittingly like that.
