We have had a couple of reports in the last 2 days, about deliveries of mobile phones – ‘By Mistake’.  These are ordered online in your name and sent to your address.  Because some form of identity theft is involved, the fraudsters, can track the delivery online.  When they know the phones are being delivered, they phone you and explain that a mistake has occurred and ask you to hand them over to a courier, when they are delivered.  They then sit outside your home, until the delivery van arrives and watch them being handed over.  They then ring your doorbell, remind you that you have had a call, that this is a mistake and ask you to hand them over !
 
Guess who gets the bill at the end of the month !
 
Two cases in two days, please don’t let it be you.
