I don’t usually have parcels delivered to my home, but my daughters American friend asked if she could send a parcel ( for my daughter) here as I’m in more.
It hasn’t arrived ( Xmas gift). I have, however, received a couple of emails from a delivery company, advising that they “ couldn’t deliver due to lack of complete address”. They offered to return on a given date but at a small charge of £1 or £3 depending on date - next day or two, If I didn’t take action it would be returned to sender.
As I was expecting a parcel ( even though I felt uneasy), I gave my credit card details.
They immediately followed it up by a further email request for my bank details. I smelt a rat so immediately contacted my credit card co and cancelled my card. Nothing has been taken out in that short period. Phew.
Could anyone advise me what usually happens with these type of companies if you are not in to take delivery.
If I have to send a parcel it’s always by Royal Mail so this is all new to me.
