RESIDENTS in the Wee County are being warned by Trading Standards about a potential Royal Mail scam.

The counterfeit cards, which say 'sorry we missed you', look exactly like those of the postal company but lack the official logo. 

To organise a redelivery the cards urge recipients to call a 0208 number, which is not registered to Royal Mail. 

And after ringing the number the automated message asks for your details and consignment number. 

A Royal Mail spokesperson said:  “The Royal Mail security team is looking into this incident as a matter of urgency. 

"Customers should check delivery cards very carefully to ensure they are genuine, and remain vigilant. Although this card is similar to one of our Something For You cards, the Royal Mail logo is crucially missing.

"Customers should also consider whether they are expecting a delivery from the company named on the card”.
