Don’t Get Scammed This Christmas

Be on your Guard

Christmas is fast approaching, 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).

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: http://www.crimestoppers-uk.org/crime-prevention helpingprevent-crime/scams/postal-deliveryscam

Please be aware that the premium rate number may change but nevertheless please do not call any number stated on a card from PDS. Can you please make all your family, friends and neighbours aware of the above.
