Re current scam

Alert message sent 19/08/2017 14:30:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

I would like to make residents aware of a potential fraud which involves misleading delivery cards being posted through letterboxes.
The ‘something for you’ cards arriving through letterboxes are designed to look like they have come from Royal Mail.
The cards, which lack the Royal Mail logo, look almost identical to the ‘something for you’ slips that are posted through homes when a delivery can’t be made.
To organise a redelivery the cards urge recipients to call a 0208 number, which is not registered to Royal Mail. After ringing the number the automated message asks for your details and consignment number.
We would remind residents to check delivery cards very carefully to ensure they are genuine and remain vigilant. Although this card is similar to the Royal Mail card the Royal Mail logo is crucially missing.
Customers should consider whether they are expecting delivery. If in doubt, do not call the number provided, give your details or personal information and get in touch with Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
