    Good heads-up. Although the instant £15 billing is probably fatuous, the hoax itself is true and the number is apparently £1.50 per minute.

    Further reading on Snopes.com as always.

    From ICSTIS...

    We 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 from BT landlines (Higher rates may apply if the call is made through a different phone network).
    This service is under investigation by ICSTIS. For more information click the 'More…' link .
