Postal Scam:

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 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 £315 for the phone call.

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

For more information, see the Crime Stoppers website:

I query that cost - 09066 numbers were £1.50/min, there's a lot of exaggeration to get to £315.

Also, from phonepayplus (regulator)..

Quote:
PhonepayPlus has the following information about the premium rate 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 this email warning you about the alleged scam, please do not forward it to others. Instead please forward this information from PhonepayPlus.
* This service costs - This line is now closed (plus any phone network surcharges - check with your phone company for full details).
