Don't Get caught Out By PDS Delivery Scam
Undelivered parcel could result in huge phone bill!
Crimestoppers have warned Chiswick residents of a scam involving a bogus delivery company.
A card is posted through letterboxes 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," warn Crimestoppers.
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.
