Re: Warnİng

I don't know how much sympathy should be given to the person losing the 300tl.

I think most people would know full well that they never ordered and were not waiting for a delivery.

Basically this also come partly down to 'GREED' whereas the person receiving the call is actually going to go and pick up a phone worth as you say 2000tl that had never ordered one, therefore 'in theory' going to pick up someone else's phone. (theft)

Obviously there are people 'genuinely being conned' and yes those I do feel sorry for.

Re: Scam Warning

Its like internet or E-Mail scams,if you get a call and you haven't ordered one why would anybody in their right mind go and collect it.Some people would and for that they deserve to pay for an empty box.Just my opinion.

Yes, but that a lot different, because eventually they want all your personal details, including your bank details.

Although no actual knowledge of the post office collection scam I suppose when people are given maybe a collection code they then think it's all kosher and decide to do the deed.
