Royal Mail and Trading Standards are making Bedfordshire residents aware of a scam that is believed to be currently circulating around the country, as Christmas approaches.
The scam involves a card being posted through letterboxes from a company called PDS, which in this case stands for Parcel Delivery Service.
The card suggests that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you will need to contact them on 0906 661191 (a premium rate number). Do not call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize.

Action Fraud has also urged all residents not to call the number provided on the card, and if in doubt, to get in touch with the centre by using its online fraud reporting tool or calling 0300 123 2040.
