Scam postcards are being delivered to UK residents’ homes claiming that a parcel containing “jewellery” is waiting for the homeowner.

The personally addressed postcards say:

“The office is attempting to reach you. To claim this parcel and accept this offer, you must telephone the number below immediately and arrange for a delivery. The item is prepaid, but a processing and delivery fee of £10 must be remitted. This fee can be paid only by telephone and only with a credit card (VISA or MasterCard). This is your only notification”

If you call the 020 number you are asked to pay £10 by credit card. Victims who have reported this to Action Fraud have said that the automated service told them the package would be delivered the same day, but did not receive anything.

Action Fraud has received several reports of this recently occurring fraud and this information has been assessed by National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) resulting in disruption of the fraudster’s phone number.

Also be on the lookout for slight variations of this scam - which use different phone numbers and delivery items.  

Protection and reporting advice

If you receive one these postcards:

Do not call the number provided.

Do not give your card details.

If you receive a delivery card through your letterbox which you do not believe is genuine and which asks you to dial a premium rate number, you can contact PhonepayPlus on 0800 500 212 (Mon-Fri, 8am-6pm) for further guidance.

If you receive one of these delivery cards, do not pay any money and report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or by using the online reporting tool.

Spring is on its Way and the Snowdrops are Blossoming

Winter might not have yet lived up to its promise of the ‘coldest winter in 100 years’, but we have been buffeted by strong winds and deluged with rain. Despite all this the keen gardeners of Nottinghamshire have been tending their plants and working hard to get their gardens ready for another exciting year of growth.

The Beeches in Milton near Tuxford is the forerunner of the glories of Nottinghamshire gardens to come, reminding us that spring is really on the way no matter how cold, damp and windy the weather has been.

The National Garden Scheme (NGS) in Nottinghamshire has a real spring delight for enthusiastic gardeners and for those who just like to look at a lovely garden:-

The Beeches, The Avenue, Milton, near Tuxford NG22 0PW

Opening Sunday March 22nd 2015, 11.00a.m. to 4.00p.m.

Entry £3.00, accompanied children free

The NGS is a registered charity established specifically to raise money to make donations to charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Help the Hospices, The Queen’s Nursing Institute and others. Most of the gardens that open for the NGS are privately owned and open on just a few days each year. They offer visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy people’s normally private creations.
