Postal Scam Warning from Leicestershire Force Crime Prevention Officer

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 £15 for the phone call. If you do receive a
card with these details, then please contact ICSTIS (the premium rate
service regulator) at www.icstis.org.uk or Trading Standards on via
Consumer Direct on 08454 040506
