    Default Please read WARNING!!!!

    HAVE JUST RECEIVED THIS FROM A WORK MATE AND WOULD LIKE TO WARN YOU ALL

    "The Trading Standards Office have brought the following scam to our

    attention:

    If 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 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 ICTIS (the premium rate service
    regulator) at http ://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,"


    THIS IS NOT A JOKE !!!!!!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    Yep, that's become a popular one Chris. I saw a notice about it posted up in my local delivery office when I was collecting a package.

    Good heads up for people who haven't heard of it though!

    £15 to even listen to the start of the recorded message...that's a bit steep! how do they get away with that?

    can 0906 numbers charge as much as they like?

    Also, the same thing is happening on mobile phones. A no' similar to that above will appear as a missed call, don't think the phone even rings, when you call back, £15 charged straight away. Had it yesterday morning, thankully the wife was there to warn me.
