Important information from Lancashire County Council Trading Standards Service.

A report has been received of a Lancaster resident receiving an unsolicited email from someone purporting to be Maria Seto from the Sales Department, providing a draft Bill of Lading (which is basically a receipt of freight services) & a packing list and stating that she would email a copy of the commercial invoice tomorrow. The consumer had not bought any goods and was not expecting the delivery of any.  Trading Standards advice is to never give personal information or to pay over money in response to unsolicited emails.
 If you receive an email which you suspect is bogus, speak to family or friends or the Citizens Advice consumer service (telephone 08454 04 05 06) and seek advice.
