Title: Postal Spam Warning!
Post by: White Ensign on October 18, 2008, 07:17:48 pm
Well- Christmas is coming closer and I have received this warning from a mate. As I am not living in the UK I would like to pass it to all the mates out there.


Postal Scam
Can you circulate this around especially as Christmas is fast approaching - it has been confirmed by Royal Mail. The Trading Standards Office are making people aware of the following scam:
 
A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service)suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a premium rate number). DO NOT call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize.
 
If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will already have been billed 15 for the phone call.
 
If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 02072396655 or ICSTIS (the premium rate service regulator) at www.icstis.org.uk
