PDS Scam emails

An old email warning of the dangers of a company called PDS is making the rounds again, usually along the lines of:
Can you circulate this around especially as Xmas is fast approaching -

It has been confirmed by Royal Mail. The Trading Standards Office are making people aware of the following scam:

A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service) suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a premium rate number).

DO NOT call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize........
Please DO NOT forward copies of this email if you receive it. It was a genuine scam some five years ago, but has long since been terminated. For further reference, see this article at Hoax Slayer.
