    Hi all

    Just wanted to post a quick warning of another scam doing the rounds.

    The other day my 87 year old father in law got a parcel delivered by Royal Mail, when he opened it he found a nice new mobile phone with a pre filled out contract, which had some of is details, name and address and phone number but things like date of birth and banking details where wrong. Good job I was there when it arrived, within about half an hour of it’s arrival he got a phone call from someone (not going to say where his accent said he was from ) my phone had been delivered to you by accident and I will send the delivery driver back to you to collect it. Obviously I smelt a Scam from the off and reported it to the phone company and the police. He had another 6 calls from the scammers trying to get the phone of him, but he held out and they eventually stopped calling once they knew the Police had been called.

    Just a heads up for anyone out there that thinks they have just won a new phone.

    Remember the documentation is in your name so you will be held accountable if you give it to the scammer or try to keep it your self.

    Be on your guard
