Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator at Surrey police has sent me a warning regarding the leaf letter distributed by certain people in the name of a parcel delivery company. The leaf letter suggested that the parcel delivery company named Parcel Delivery Service is not able to deliver the parcel and directed the residents to contact them on a number, which is identified as premium rate number.

When somebody makes a call to this number, it would be costing around 315 pounds for a call. It is later identified that it is being originated from Belize.

It was found that premium rate telephone service regulator in UK PhonepayPlus has brought this scam into light. It happened in 2005, when the chain email scam originated and subsequently PhonepayPlus barred the number and fined the company, which was based in Belize.

PhonepayPlus has directed the customers not to forward the leaf letter or email, if received. If you feel that something is fishy in all affairs, you can inform PhonepayPlus on 0800500212 between 9 am to 5 pm on any days between Monday and Friday.

Are you tired of waiting in long queue to get your favourite costumes or gadgets? Here comes the best way to change your conventional shopping format. For 10 pounds you will get your items delivered at home instead of waiting in queue for a long time.

The service is offered by Oasis Warehouse and Coast and Karen Millen. This new service, which is expected to bring a revolution in the shopping methods, is targeting those residing in London and do not have enough time for them to spend for shopping. The initiative is expected to take off ahead of Christmas.

Aurora chain multi channel Dierctor Hash Ladha says: “This scheme is launched keeping in mind that the customers would like to buy the products in a fast manner. It takes only one-and.-a-half hours to get their favourite one.”

Aurora chain is basically depending up on courier services company named Shutl and Eagle Eye Solution, a software firm to execute this service. The courier services company, which is having the reputation of providing similar schemes to the customers of Argos, has been directed to pick up the selected product from the nearest showroom of the customers’ area. This brings down the time of delivery.

Warehouse and Oasis have gone much ahead of Aurora in this service. Shoppers of the net-A-porter have the flexibility of choosing their selected products delivered on the same day before 8 pm, while the shoppers of Topshop will have to have more patience as their delivery used to be made next day after the order is being placed.

Though efforts are being made to speed up the parcel delivery, it is clear that the retailers have to travel a long way to reach their goal of next moment delivery. “We have made our fastest delivery in 15 minutes,” said Ladha.

That was just an exceptional one, as the parcel delivery depends up on lots of aspects like traffic and the distance between nearest store and the customer’s residents.
