Royal Mail postal scam this is for real






Subject: Royal Mail postal scam this is for real



BEWARE, THIS IS A GENUINE SCAM – pass on to family and friends.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



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). 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 ICSTIS (the premium rate
service regulator) at Icstis Homepage <http://www.icstis.org.uk/>
or your local trading standards office.

It's an old "pass it on" email that's been doing the rounds for a while. It was closed down long ago, and the £15 per minute bit is wrong.
