Re: Warning

Thanks for that JBR.
I had something similar by email a few years ago saying there was a parcel from the USA that needed customs duty paying or postage or it might have been storage costs, I can't remember which. It turned out to be a scam.
Luckily I checked if out with USA fraud thingamegig.

Re: Warning

JBR,I told my son about it,he looked it up online..the same warning came up in 205..then another year 2011..quite a few different years were coming up about it,.what's going on,...I guess they have started this scam again....thank you for the warning.

Me being gullible me..I would have rang that number.

You have to be so vigilant this day and age.

Re: Warning

I googled the number, and this story was in the papers in 2011

Still, best be aware of such things.

Re: Warning

I'd be surprised if the telephone companies couldn't do more about this.

For a start, the 09- numbers (as in this scam) are all very expensive to call. What is the point of that, other than to make a lot of money for someone, even if they are operating legally?

My sons mobile phone,stops him from making these 09 numbers...that's why I don't use my landline much..because of these numbers...I have racked up huge bills in the past.

They won't catch me again...you watch,me saying that,..I bet I get caught again!..
