royal mail postal scam

Can all of you please read the following and inform friends families etc This is NOT a silly post like we have had in the past (junk posts selling mobile phones etc). I am copying this from an email which my parents got. 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 09066611 911 (a premium rate number). DO NOT call this number, as this is scam originating from Belize. If you call the number and you start to hear a message you will have already been billed £15 for the phone call. If you do recieve the card with these details, please contact Royal Mail Fraud hotline on 0207 239665 or ICSTIS www.icstis.org.uk.
