CHRISTMAS IS COMING - SO BEWARE THE POSTAL SCAM

Felixstowe Scribblers

Royal Mail Postal Scam

This scam has been confirmed by Royal Mail and is especially relevant as Christmas is fast approaching: 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 0207 2396655 or ICSTIS (the premium rate service regulator) at www.icstis.org.uk, or your local trading standards office

This is a HOAX vaguely based on facts from years ago.

"If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will already have been billed £15 for the phone call."

Not even technically possible, unless the call was 10 minutes long at £1.50 a minute.
