Royal Mail scam: Some of the most common scams to watch out for – and where you can get help | #datingscams | romancescams | #scams



Fresh warnings have been issued over a new scam that claims payment is required for a package to be delivered.

The latest con involves the victim receiving a text message from “Royal Mail”, claiming that a parcel is ready for delivery, but that an additional fee of £1.99 or £2.99 is required.

A link is shared for the recipient to click through and pay the alleged fee, only to be directed to a copycat website operated by fraudsters.

One victim revealed on social media in a tweet that went viral that such a con had left her “scammed out of every penny I had” after fraudsters telephoned her pretending to be her bank and asking her to move money around.

The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) and Royal Mail have both warned that such messages are fraudulent, with the CTSI adding that such scams have surged over the past year.
