New Post Scam warning

Thursday 05 February 2015


Jersey Post issued a warning last night about the latest scam targeting Islanders.

The picture above shows the cards that have been found distributed to Island addresses – the fraudsters behind the scheme send the cards, demanding that Islanders contact a number and hand over their bank card details for a £10 delivery fee.

But Jersey Post are on the case and they are asking anyone who gets the cards to just throw them away, or to call their customer services line on 616616 for advice on how to make sure they don’t get conned out of their cash.

A short statement from Jersey Post said: “We have recently been made aware of a scam regarding holding a parcel and requesting personal payment information in order to release the item.

“We have uploaded a copy of the card that is currently being used.

“Should one of these end up in your hands please do not act on it, simply dispose of it.”
