This got circulated at work so I figured I'd post it here. Nothing very new, but a responce number if anyone gets one through the door.

How do they get through the door if the royal mail don't deliver them? Or do they not check do you think?

Please note the following scam and pass on to friends and neighbours!

ROYAL MAIL FRAUD ALERT




As Christmas is fast approaching – it has been confirmed by Royal Mail and the UK Trading Standards Office are making people aware of the following scam:



a. A card is posted through doors 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.



b. If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will have already 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

I had a copy of this at work as well, and from a quick check on Snopes, it does appear to be a scam as opposed to an urban myth.

I believe that's referring to this, or something very like it:

It's a three year old scam and the number has long been closed.

PhonepayPlus has the following information about the number 09066611911.

This number was used on a scam that PhonepayPlus adjudicated on in 2005. This number is no longer running and has not been running since December 2005. If you receive a copy of the email warning you about the alleged scam, please do not forward it to others. Instead, please forward this information from PhonepayPlus.



Email chain letters of course go on forever.
