Postal scam

December 6, 2010

This information was supplied by a local resident who got it from Crimestoppers

Can you circulate this around especially as Xmas 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 6xxx911 (a Premium rate number). (I have deleted some of the digits to stop anyone calling them accidentally)
  • DO NOT call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize. (formerly British Honduras in Central America)
  • If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will  already have been billed £315 for the phone call.

If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail  Fraud on 020 7239 6655.
