RAF MILDENHALL, England — Police in Suffolk are warning area residents of a postal scam that could end up costing people 15 pounds.

According to a warning from the Royal Mail Fraud Unit, cards have recently been placed in residents’ mailboxes by a company that calls itself Parcel Delivery Service.

The card states that the company was unable to deliver a package and asks residents to call 0906-661-1911, which is actually what police call a “premium rate” number. If someone calls the number and hears the recorded message, they will automatically be charged 15 pounds for the call.

Anyone who receives one of these cards should call the Royal Mail Fraud Unit at 0207-239-6655.
