Hahaha! Anyone who has had to post letters or parcels knew the PO's claim that 9 out of 10 items were delivered the next day.

Now, they've been caught red handed at a scam to pick out the test postal items and given them priority delivery. And they got bonuses based on the results too!

Wonder how many other scams like this are going on? HMRC letters, perhaps?
