Parcel Delivery Service Scam



For your information

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 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 020 7239 6655 or ICTIS at 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.
