Martin Lewis warns ITV viewers about Royal Mail scam — Scam Guards
Martin Lewis has issued a warning on the “well-known” Royal Mail scam.
It led to many accounts of people falling victim – including one graduate who lost thousands.
And during an appearance on ITV’s This Morning last week, Martin Lewis told people what to do if they get a text.
One caller had received a text from Royal Mail and wasn’t sure what to make of it.
Eammon Holmes read the message aloud on air.
He said: “Your package has been held and will not be delivered due to a £1.99 unpaid shipping fee.
“To pay this now visit – and then they say deposit delivery fee dot com.”
Martin immediately recognised the message as a scam.
He said: “That is a scam.”
“That is a very well-known scam.”
