    at the weekend I had a message from my mother in law saying that next time we go to visit she's going to hide the spade.
    Incidently, toget back to the parcel thing. I had a parcel delivered this afternoon that was unexpected. At first he said that he'd picked up the wrong one, wandered off and after a few minutes I realised that my back door was unlocked, so I dashed through (tripping over the dog enroute) and locked it. Back to the front door and there was still no sign of man or van. Approximately 10 minutes later he returned with a parcel for my husband.
    I honestly didn't think it was genuine. Just goes to show.

    By the way, once I received such a message. But I deleted it and didn’t pay attention to this since I have never used that service. But what about that company? Such messages undermine the authority of the company. I have always used parcel delivery service 'My Hermes' and never received such messages.

    The basics of the message are -

    Can you circulate this around especially as Xmas is fast approaching - it has been confirmed by Royal Mail. 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 0906 6611911 (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 315 for the phone call.

    If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 020 7239 6655.

    Mark
    A further heads-up that this message is STILL going the rounds, and that people are STILL cluttering up the web with 'send this to everyone you know' messages.

    The irony is that I received a message about this and it says for further information 'see this link', which leads to a Crimestoppers page where it clearly says DON'T forward the message on as the scam was stopped nearly six years.

    Someone even forwarded it to me! Canada post is different than British mail and parcel service, I am sure.... Anyhow, I deleted it!
    Just an aside.....
    Nice to "see" you MarkJ... I've missed you on the forums. You must be ""lurking"?
