Parcel scam is shut down

A SCAM that originates from Belize in Central America has been shut down, Hucknall’s police chief has reported.

The fraud involves a card being posted through your door from a company called Parcel Delivery Service (PDS). It suggests a parcel is waiting and you need to call 0906 6611911 (a premium-rate number).

However, when you call, you are billed a whopping £315. Now work by the telephone companies and trading standards officers has disabled the number.
