Hi all, Just had the following emailed to me to pass on to you lot
I’m writing to let you know about a potential crime that happened to me personally this morning.
We heard the parcel delivery postman pull up outside the house first thing this morning, so we ran downstairs to meet him. Instead of coming to the door, he was intercepted by a black guy standing at our gate: they were talking and then the guy signed for the delivery. I said ‘hang on a minute, what’s going on?’ The guy said the delivery was for him, and the name on the delivery was ‘John MacDonald’. I asked what the address was, and the postman confirmed it was our address. I confirmed that there was no-one of that name living at our address. The guy said he lived round here, and I confirmed to the postman that I knew all our neighbours, and this guy wasn’t one of them. The postman took the parcel off him and the guy walked off.
I’ve spoken to our local sorting office who confirmed that there is a mobile phone scam going on in the area. The mobile gets ordered to your home address and the delivery is intercepted and signed for. The bills then come in for a mobile you know nothing about. I have spoken to South Yorkshire police to get the incident logged and they have said they will be following it up.
Please be vigilant and let all your friends and neighbours aware so that they don’t get caught out.'
So be carefull chaps and I hope this is usefull
