Parcel Delivery Service (PDS) Scam Warning
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 this 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 239 6655 or ICTIS (the premium rate service regulator) at www.icstis.org.uk or your local trading standards office.
This is a genuine scam.
This service is under investigation by ICSTIS. Please be aware of this scam and forward this information to as many as possible.
