Royal Mail has launched another major new initiative to protect consumers from scam mail. Since November, Royal Mail has successfully stopped more than 700,000 scam items from reaching its customers.

As part of its ongoing battle against the fraudsters, Royal Mail will begin proactively contacting by Special Delivery households it believes are receiving high volumes of scam mail. The latest anti-scam initiative will initially focus on most-impacted customers. It will be extended in due course.

Royal Mail will block and impound scam mail at its major distribution centres before it reaches the customer’s letterbox. Legitimate business and personal mail will continue to be delivered to the customer in the usual way. For more details Trading Standards
