Pretty sure this is NOT a hoax....as is the Colonel who alerted me to it today (AFTER an email from an Oppo telling me about it) so I thought it was worth posting here.

yes I KNOW there are legions of these
Yes I HAVE visited www.419eater.com

anyway, be a bit careful folks...

If you receive a card through your door from a company call PDS
(Parcel Delivery Service) saying that they have a parcel awaiting delivery instructions and can you contact them on 0906 6611911

DO NOT call the number as this is a mail scam originating from Belize If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you willalready 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 at http://www.icstis.org.uk
or your local trading standards office.

This is a genuine scam. ICTIS have the following information about this number.

This is a card posted through your letter box from PDS Parcel Delivery suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and to call
the premium rate number in question. This service costs £1.50 per minute.This service is under investigation by ICSTIS.


Please be aware of this scam and forward this information to as many as possible.

Should you receive a card from this company please follow the above instructions.
