Useful information on scam mail from Royal Mail
Who receives scam mail?
It can be anyone. You, a relative, or a friend could receive this type of mail. Even the most alert people can be taken in by these criminals.
Royal Mail are combating scam mail
Royal Mail have told us they are doing all they can to protect their customers from scam mail. In 2016 Royal Mail introduced a series of additional measures to reduce the impact to their customers. This includes the introduction of a new industry wide code of practice for dealing with scam mail as well as a new clause in Royal Mail’s bulk mail contracts. They are working with other postal operators in the UK and around the world to share intelligence and take steps to prevent it entering the UK.
They have to date proactively stopped over 4 million suspected pieces of scam mail at distribution centres around the UK, before they can be posted through letterboxes.
Royal Mail are continuing to work with postmen and women across the UK who are the eyes and ears in the local community, industry partners and law enforcement agencies including National Trading Standards to tackle the issue more vigorously.
Should you be concerned about scam mail, contact Royal Mail by:
- Writing to FREEPOST SCAM MAIL, enclosing any items that are suspected of being scam mail
- Calling the Royal Mail Scam Mail Helpline on 0800 0113 466 or
- Emailing email@example.com
