Postal Scam and 090 numbers


By Dunfermline.info - Sat, 4th Nov 2006

Please be aware that last year there was a scam across the UK received cards from Parcel Delivery Services.
ICSTIS are aware of such scams, although from their web site they say that there will never be an initial charge of £15 for any call, the maximum is £1.50 per minute.

This is in fact an urban myth. It is not possible
for a £15 charge to be made on connection. ICSTIS also have a number of measures in place in their Code of Practice to ensure that consumers are protected from unexpectedly high charges. Calls and texts cost a maximum of £1.50 per minute. The particular service referred to in the chain email used a recorded message which lasted a maximum of 6 minutes - making the total cost £9.

Under the Code, all service providers must state clearly in promotional material the likely costs for calls to each service (either per minute or total charge inclusive of VAT).

The Courier ran a story recently regarding such a scam, reportedly charging you £15 should you call. Hopefully, this will never happen. A £1.50 per minute scam is bad enough.
