Beware of Post Office scam

The South Africa Post Office (Sapo) has warned the public of a parcel delivery scam designed to defraud them.

“Members of the public receive an emailed letter from a company purporting to be affiliated to ‘Speed Messenger Services’ using an adaptation of the Post Office’s Speed Services logo.  The letter demands payment for import duty on parcels before the parcels can be delivered,” the Post Office said in a statement on Friday.

The Post Office has assured the public that it does not require customers to make any payment before parcels are released.

“If VAT or any other fees are payable on a parcel, this is paid at a Post Office counter at the time when the parcel is collected. The customer will receive a valid receipt for this payment,” the Post Office said.

In cases where the Post Office has the cellphone number of the recipient, the customer will receive an SMS requesting him or her to collect the parcel at a specific post office branch.

The SMS will not request that funds be deposited into an account.

Members of the public that have information regarding this scam, are requested to call the SA Police Service or the Post Office’s crime buster hotline on 0800 020 070.

The Post Office advises the public to ignore communication of this nature.

Duke’s strength coaches pushed the former MVP through core workouts, then lifting and throwing, throwing, throwing. On rainy days, Manning wanted to do wet ball drills outside. On cold days, he wanted to feel the chill. Finally, Cutcliffe identified smiles on Manning’s face when he felt strength returning. The calls went out for the simulated game. Duke’s players were to participate, as well. They kept everything quiet. The shared focus of Manning and Cutcliffe would now include others, and cameras were set up on the sideline. The goal remained the same.

  5. Sorry, you must have the wrong number cozaar pill picture Like most Adam Sandler movies, it’s exactly like most Adam Sandler movies. It was directed by Dennis Dugan, who’s contributed not only “Grown Ups,” but several other titles in the Sander canon (from the high of “Happy Gilmore” to the low of “Jack and Jill”). This movie stars all Sandler’s buddies and gleefully embraces lowbrow crudity even while promoting loving family values.

You may want to quit.’ I know that there are newspaper editors, other politicians that say, ‘Boy, I wish that guy Weiner would quit,'” he said. “They don’t know New York. They certainly don’t know me.”

  9. Have you read any good books lately? aciclovir pomada bula pdf Sorry, Suri — the media will never stop following you, because you’re TomKat’s cub. Picking a fight with paparazzi (she yelled “Get out of the way” at photogs last week), insisting you be carried, and having a meltdown when mom doesn’t buy you a puppy won’t win you any fans. Fellow 7-year-old Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, has her flaws, but she has learned to embrace the spotlight. The laid-back pageant princess can get spoiled Suri to redneckognize that a little honey goes a long way .

About 22,000 North and South Koreans had brief family reunions before the program stopped in 2010 due to increased tensions between the countries. The reunions are emotional for Koreans, as most participants are elderly and are eager to see loved ones before they die.

KTGA directly owns all but one remaining network in the Almaty region, which may be merged with the company pending the state’s approval.

Kashyap, a professor of economics and finance at the University of Chicago and a leader of the project. “It is more sensational and maybe makes for better reading to have point-counterpoint. It seemed reasonable to provide some context. There’s a lot more settled issues than most people have a sense of.”

  25. I was made redundant two months ago voltaren rapid 50 mg dosage This is the first on-camera appearance of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight since they were freed from the clutches of Ariel Castro – who allegedly beat and raped them and held them locked inside his house under unimaginable conditions.

  28. I was born in Australia but grew up in England zovirax tabletas dispersables plm Not a chance, Comcast (or Time Warner or AT&T). The Great Recession forced Americans to finally clue up to how awful and predatory all those media giants are (Comcast is GE/NBC-Universal). It’s been a decade since Comcast has been able to NOT screw up customer accounts, fail to correct their mistakes – even as they admit it is Comcast at fault, arbitrarily jack up services, as well as surreptitiously slap services not ordered onto billing that never gets fixed. That’s why the customer retention is in the toilet. What a racket. More and more Americans are cutting the cable, opting for free over air broadcast channels and internet-only service for streaming – often for free, as more devices are capable of all-in-one HD delivery. It isn’t because people don’t want cable tv, though most people I know simply refuse to pay for 250 channels wherein 230 are pure garbage, latino, religious, or shoutin’ head so-called news. It’s also because they HATE the cable companies THAT much. Customers will hate them just as much when their security system gets screwed up in the same way… with wayyy higher life issues at stake. Wait till Comcast makes a mistake and retaliates by flipping a switch and shutting down your cable phone/wi-fi service on which the security system works. Life’s both too short and too precious to put your family into the hands of these corrupt corporate bozos. That’s why they’re trying to lock people into the same kind of 2-year contract the telcoms do on cell phone service. No thanks.

Can I use your phone? dostinex einnahme erfahrungen Most fundamentally, as Ravallion writes, we've gone from thinking that poverty is a necessary ingredient for economic development to thinking that poverty constrains it. Numerous related assumptions have (mostly) fallen along the way: The poor were at fault for their own poverty (through moral weakness, alcoholism, laziness, a penchant for making too many babies). The poor were born that way, and nothing could be done about it. Besides, poverty had its own utility: If people weren't hungry, they wouldn't work. Thus, poverty was a social good.

  30. On another call 450 mg wellbutrin xl reddit There’s no question that he banged the drum about abuses in the financial industry that federal regulators were ignoring.

  32. I can’t get a signal singulair granulato 4 mg The bank could seek to reduce the share of its profit it pays out in dividends. Alternatively, it may try to boost profits themselves. The most direct way to do so would be by increasing the spread between the interest rates it charges for loans and those it pays on its funding. While competitive pressures may limit how much an individual bank can widen these spreads, lending spreads could rise across the system if all banks followed a similar strategy and alternative funding channels (such as capital markets) did not offer more attractive rates.

  34. Until August alesse 28 side effects depression This year, newly issued subsidized undergraduate loans would be lowered from 6.8 percent to 3.86 percent. (The rates will apply retroactively to loans issued after rates doubled on July 1.)  New loans for graduate students would carry 5.41 percent rates, and PLUS loans for grad students and parents of undergrad students would carry 6.41-percent rates. The loans themselves would carry fixed rates, but new loans would start at different rates in coming years. Interest rates are expected to rise as the economy improves.

Strasburg falls behind 2-1 when a fastball misses. He decides to go with the fastball again. He looks in at Pedro Alvarez, his knees bent slightly, his weight back, his bat as straight as the Washington Monument. The pitcher winds and fires, a 96 mph fastball and now Pedro Alvarez, son of a livery cab driver, a kid out of West 196th St., is ready to go to work, his hands powering forward, his hips opening, his 31-ounce bat crushing into the pitch, producing a thwack so deep and loud they probably heard it on Capitol Hill.

  40. I’m a housewife zantac 75 active ingredients All of the posts I see appear to be missing the author's primary point. First, he gives repeated credit to the game for its technological prowess(“..technologically impressive..Its open universe is unparalleled..”) Yet he points out, quite accurately, that the cultural/social satirical and emotional aspects of the game are dated and lack the current-day creativity. He isn't saying that this shouldn't be part of the game, but instead that those elements should have evolved and grown, like the game has mechanically.

And simple exercises can fit the training bill, Kimbel adds. Exercises that use a person’s body weight as leverage – such as push-ups, pull-ups and lunges – prepare participants for the rigors of the course and don’t require a gym or trainer.

With the aid of the adaptive optics system used by the 10-meter Keck telescopes in Hawaii—which reduces the blurring effects of Earth’s atmosphere—the team obtained a high-resolution image of this supernova to determine its precise position. Then they compared the Keck image to a series of pictures of the same galaxy (NGC 5806) taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2005, and found one starlike source spatially coincident to the supernova. Its intrinsic brightness, color, and size—as well as its mass-loss history, inferred from supernova radio emissions—were characteristic of a Wolf-Rayet star.
