The following scam warning has been issued by Fox Lane & District Residents' Association.

Christmas is fast approaching, 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 661 1911 (a Premium rate number).

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 0207 239 6655. For more information, see the Crime Stoppers website: www.crimestoppers-uk.org/crime-prevention/helping-prevent-crime/scams/postal-delivery-scam   .

Please be aware that the premium rate number may change but nevertheless please do not call any number stated on a card from the PDS.
