With Christmas fast approaching the frequency of the Undelivered Parcel Scam will be increasing.
As most readers will know this is where we receive emails, or cards through the door, advising us to call a telephone number to trace a parcel addressed to us that a parcel delivery service was unable to deliver. The number turns out to be a premium rate one that costs at least £1.50 a minute, billed through your friendly telephone service provider, who take a lucrative cut of the fraud and squeal. if challenged, that they are simply the utterly innocent “conduit” for the fraudsters.
