Scam Warning!

#1
The Royal Mail are asking staff in all public services to circulate this message around especially as Christmas is fast approaching.

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.

Wow, the cost of an urban myth scam has gone up, it was only £15 in 2006. Is it a double-scam if you forard an e-mail about a scam and then find the e-mail was a scam?

I would also like to give out a scam warning.

If you get an e-mail offering you two free tickets to see Jedward - DO NOT OPEN IT!

It contains tickets to see Jedward, this is serious!

I regularly receive emails from well meaning folk wih warnings of scams/hoaxs. Yet to find one that [after consulting snopes] that isn't either years old and/or a load of old tosh. I take great delight in emailing back with bold large letters "check f@cking snopes!!!!"

Like the people who think that facebook will blow up your computer and send ninjas to kill your dog if you don't copy and paste a status by midnight?

Send Ninjas to kill my dog?

Have a word.

The Stealth Stinker? Versus Ninjas? Shiny knives and numchackas and them little throwy star things?

A little bit of wee nearly fell out then. My WMD is more than a match for them eodmatt castoffs. He can do a room clearance in 3 seconds, and now, in his 11 and a half years of age, has finally started trumping, which I find highly amusing and fortunately because I have a cold that would kill a bloke, can't smell. He can though.

"Aw, what a lovely dog, Can I stroke him?".

"Go on, little girl smell your hands".

"Mummy, I feel sick, it smells of nasty".

Ninjas doing in the Pirate Tap Dancer? I very much doubt it, but it gave me a chuckle.

I often wonder how many people every day have "found the teddy bear virus on my C drive so I've deleted it." and have therefore removed some major part of Java? Bet that's still doing the rounds of the moronic.

I also love the one:

Please forward this to at least ten people in the next 90 seconds or your cock will fall off"

Then some fuckwit sends it.

Cunts.

I'd like to see BT try and bill me £315 for a 10 second phone call!

Has anyone called the number to see what it really is?

Edited to add: Ah, I see. It was a genuine scam (if such a thing is possible), but the number was disconnected when it was caught.

Imagine how many phone wanks you could have for £315. Not me though I just phone random 0800 numbers and hope for a woman. upstairs for thinking and all that.

I phoned the number you gave above just to check and you are quite right! What kind of idiot would call an 0906 number though...??

I saw one on Faceache the other day that was all about how because there are five weekends in October then it is very lucky for money due to Feng Shui but only if you copy and paste the status within the next few minutes after reading it....

It's amazing how those venerable ancient Chinese Feng Shui masters could predict the invention of Facebook and status updates
