Police warning over parcel scam

Have your say

POLICE are warning people to be wary of a parcels scam.

A criminal orders goods to be sent from a mail order company to a member of the public. When the parcel arrives, the criminal wearing a high-visibility jacket collects it to send back to the company.

The parcel is never sent back to the company and the member of the public is charged for the item, which have included clothes, iPads and mobile phones.

Victims should call 0300 1232040 or police on 101.
