Royal Mail/Post Office Telephone Scam

Can you circulate this around especially - 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 or any other number on a delivery card until you check the company name or number elsewhere first with a simple google search, as this is a mail scam.

 

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 www.icstis.org.uk or your local trading standards office.

 

This is a genuine scam and is under investigation by ICSTIS.
