Beware of the latest postal scam doing the rounds.

The scam works like this:  A delivery card drops through the letter box from a company called PDR (Postal Delivery Service).   The card informs you that it had not been possible for PDR to make a delivery, and that you should contact them on the number supplied.

Not surprisingly, the number is a premium-rate line (based in Belize of all places), and by the time you have heard the start of the recorded message, you will have been charged £15.

Keep your eyes peeled.  If you receive such a card, file it under ‘R’ for Rubbish.
