    Parcel scam?

    Not sure if posted before but ........

    This message came straight from Warwickshire Police so looks to be pretty genuine:

    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 02072396655 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.

    The email is a hoax, as why would you need to contact Royal Mail fraud, ICTIS or trading standards if they are under investigation? Secondly, i assume this was sent as an email?.. The police would only post something like this through the door.
