    Got this email warning this morning

    Dont know if there is any creedence in it but just in case.


    Can you circulate this around especially as Xmas is fast approaching - it 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.

    Me too..I'd be F'ing raging if that happened to me...although I'm not sure that it's even possible to charge that much for dialing out, the scam is probably just wasting peoples time reading a forwarding the email!

    I seem to remember that the e-mail itself was the scam.... pass it on to everyone you know and they are infected with a trojan
