Phone call or note left. "We have a parcel to deliver and you were out, ring this number to arrange collection." It's an 09xx number and you get scammed on your phone bill. Don't do it.

I think this has been highlighted before. However it's good to bring it up again to remind folk.

There are always bottom dwelling scum suckers out to fleece you, especially at this time of the year.

Avoid ANY number that starts 09... LIKE THE PLAGUE !!!!!
Same league as that nice Nigerian Prince who will give a million quid IF you would be so kind as to give him your Bank details.
Aye - right-o Sunshine !!
