Tue 10/04/2018 - Parcel Delivery Scam

Please alert elderly relatives, friends and neighbours about this scam.
Someone calls at your house with a parcel to deliver, they say there is a delivery fee of a few pounds and they can only accept card payments. They take your card details and people have had thousands taken from their accounts. Never pay for a parcel. This is a scam and should be reported to the police immediately.
