Post Office Scam Emails & Messages

Dirck has informed us that he has had a couple of people come into the Post office asking about an email from Royal Mail. Both had emails of outstanding charges to pay and asks them to pay by card.


Dirck says "It is a scam, if a outstanding charge is to be paid, firstly they would send a silver/grey card with the charges on (via Andy our Posty) and secondly, they would bring the card to the Post Office. Where they would buy stamps to cover the cost and I would forward the card back to Sheringham sorting office."

This is happening more and more, if you are unsure in anyway, always pop in to speak to Dirck.
