  1. Just been sent this.

    This is for real!!!

    FYI.

    As Christmas is fast approaching, please be aware of the following information (this has been confirmed by 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).

    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 £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:

  2. Oddly, Sophos don't seem to think so.

    And nor do PhonepayPlus (the successor to ICSTIS)

    So if you could avoid flooding CA with the contents of your inbox, we'd appreciate it. Google is a particularly handy tool for the gullible should items of dubious provenance be passed to you in future.
