Scam Mail

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.

 

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.

 

We are combating scam mail – Royal Mail is committed to doing all we can to protect our customers from scam mail. In 2016 Royal Mail introduced a series of additional measures to reduce the impact on our 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. We 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.

We have to date proactively stopped over 4 million suspected pieces of scam mail at our distribution centers around the UK, before they can be posted through the letterboxes of customers.

 

We are continuing to work with our 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 this issue more vigorously.

 

Should you be concerned that someone you know is in receipt of scam mail, please contact us by:

  • Writing to Royal Mail at FREEPOST SCAM MAIL, enclosing any items that are suspected of being scam mail
  • Calling the Royal Mail Scam Mail Helpline on 0800 0113 466
