A Scam for Christmas

Here's a new scam for the UK, anticipating Christmas. You find a card in your letterbox from a company calling itself PDS (Parcel Delivery Service). It claims it was unable to deliver a parcel and asks you to phone 0906 6611911. DON'T! This is a premium rate number. You will be charged at least £15 for the call. There is no parcel. This is a criminal fraud, originating from Belize. If you receive such a card, phone Royal Mail Fraud on 020 7239 6655 or click the title link for ICSTIS (the premium rate service regulator). Please pass this warning on. You might also ask your MP when premium rate numbers will be banned. Without them, this type of crime would be impossible.
