Carlisle ex-police officer 'devastated' by £3k Royal Mail scam
A retired police officer was left "Devastated and embarrassed" when scammers posing as the Royal Mail conned him out of £3,000. He had fallen prey to a scam text message that claimed a parcel was awaiting delivery. Royal Mail has confirmed it would never send such a text message. The page requests personal and payment details, which fraudsters use to steal the victim's identity or target them with further scams. In Alan's case, which happened on 27 March, the scammers used his details to call him back, pretending to be his bank alerting him to the deception.
