Royal Mail and The Trading Standards Office are making people aware of a phone 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).

Royal Mail warn: “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 02072396655

Please be aware that the premium rate number may change but nevertheless please do not call any number stated on a card from PDS.

Royal Mail say: “If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 020 72396655.”
