The Vancouver Island Better Business Bureau is warning consumers not to fall victim to unsolicited claims from fake delivery service providers that they owe customs and delivery charges for undelivered packages.
BBB has received a number of complaints from consumers on Vancouver Island that they have recently received notification that a package is to be delivered to their home.
The package is only to be delivered if the consumer pays the customs and delivery fees associated with it first. In most cases, consumers are not expecting to receive a package.
Some customers report that the courier/delivery company goes by the name Speedy Delivery Victoria.
BBB has no records of a legitimate Speedy Delivery Victoria operating in Greater Victoria.
Anyone with information on the scam can contact the BBB at 250-386-6348 or RCMP at 250-642- 5241.
