    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.
