Royal Mail Warning

October 17, 2008

A lot of us use Royal Mail to post books to one another, so I thought it might be prudent to post a warning message here about a couple of things when dealing with Royal Mail

1. Make sure you have copied the other persons address correctly. Double check if you have to. We’ve had a couple of rare occasions where books are returned to sender because the address wasn’t recognised. It’s unclear why this occured but I’m putting my money on incorrect addresses, so please double check before going to the post office.

2. This has been confirmed by Royal Mail and 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 09066 611 911 (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 Royal Mail Fraud on 02072 396 655 or ICSTIS (the premium rate service regulator) at www.icstis.org.uk

 

On a side note the new design looks great, might post a preview here next week.
