The latest scam doing the rounds is one (supposedly) received from Royal Mail saying they had been unable to deliver a parcel twice and that a fee of £3 was needed to arrange for a delivery time. How Royal Mail could know your email address raised suspicions. On checking with the Sorting Office in Dartmouth and quoting the 2 sets of numbers of the package referred to in the email, they had nothing with those numbers in their system and confirmed they would have dropped one of their cards into the letter box to arrange collection or a date for delivery. Had the £3 been paid the scammers would almost certainly have used details of the account used to extract a lot more cash. Be aware and stay alert. Remember scammers are always on the look out for ways to get to your cash.
