Watch out for nonsense letter about phone sex

10 November 2017

Fraud Help Desk has already received several reports about a letter asking recipients to pay for telephone sex. Don’t fall for this. Don’t respond.

The letter states that you have dialed a certain phone number. It specifies the date and time. The number belongs to a telephone sex line and you’re charged € 90. According to the sender, a Czech company called RMS, the recipient needs to contact their telephone provider if they have any further questions.

The letter says the money needs to be paid urgently: within eight days. There will be ‘collateral consequences’ [bijbehorende gevolgen] if the recipient fails to meet this deadline.

Here’s an example of the letter (click to enlarge):

Our advice
Tear up this letter if you have received it. It’s a fake invoice for a service that has never been provided. The company, RMS, does not seem to exist. If you pay the requested amount, the money will go straight into the pockets of fraudsters.
