Postal scam

#1
Subject: 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.

Ummmmm hun...

If you actually read the link!

It is about a scam from 2 years ago, and refers to something that actually happened in 2005. So dont worry too much :D

Still good to be on guard from things like this. People are so desperate they are pinching the lead flashings from roofs so this is a scam that could easily rear it's head again
