Warning UK royal mail scam ...

Another forum I visit has posted some info about a fake RM scam, the info posted is:

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 0306 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:-

http://www.icstis.org.uk or your local trading standards office.

This is a genuine scam and is being investigated by ICSTIS

Just thought We should all be aware of this :slight_smile:
