The Amazon phone calls I get on a regular basis have now been replaced by a message from Tesco’s asking me to dial 1.

Me too hulahoop, and from the Royal Mail.
Deleted both.

Thanks Roses. Always good to have a reminder to be careful.

Me too! I had a message last night, asking for £2.99 for delivery of a parcel. It was from a mobile number and had a link attached.

I had two text messages, purportedly from Royal Mail saying I needed to pay a £2 re-delivery fee as I had missed the delivery.
I didn't fall for it, but I must say they looked very convincing. The website has an https address and the Royal Mail logo etc.

DH had 2 yesterday, saying they were from Royal Mail both were from mobile numbers.

They do send text messages when certain deliveries are about to be made, I had one recently saying that some goods being sent from the US were on the way. But there was no link asking for bank details so I was not concerned.

Had one from PayPal yesterday saying they had put my account on hold. Logged into my real PayPal account, absolutely no problems with it. I ignored the text obviously.

If anyone receives a message on their mobile that says it is from Royal Mail delete it straight away, they are after your bank details

Royal Mail will never contact you by phone
