Parcel scam urges victims to call premium rate number

Manx police warn of deceptive collection cards

Police are warning Manx residents of a scam involving parcel collection cards.

Some have received notes from 'Fast Express Couriers' claiming a package was unable to be left as the recipient was out.

However, officers say the purpose of this is to get the victim to call a premium rate number.

Those who receive such a card are reminded local companies will use recognised numbers and won't send such notices with a UK stamp.

The Isle of Man Constabulary says such scams will increase in the run up to Christmas.
