Royal Mail are seeking to raise the awareness of SCAM MAIL in the community.
Scam mail is illegal and targets the most vunerable in our society. Royal Mail wants to be a stop to it.
Typically, scam mail involves professional fraudsters sending convincing letters that are designed to trick people out of money or other valuables. Scam mail can include bogus competitions and fake prize draws. This mail mostly originates from overseas and is hard to detect.
To date Royal Mail have proactively stopped over 4 million suspected pieces of scam mail at their distribution centres around the UK.
Should you be concerned that someone you know is in receipt of scam mail, please contact Royal Mail, by either:
  • Writing to Royal Mail at FREEPOST SCAM MAIL, enclosing any items that are suspected of being scam;
  • Call the Royal Mail Scam Mail Helpline on 0800 0113 466; or
