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.
