Don't PF tracking numbers end in GB for GB internal parcels? I've been
given one from a seller posted early today which reads: PBLV83904xxxxx
where the last 5 x's are numbers. When I try tracking I get "We are
currently unable to confirm that (sic) status of your parcel. Please
check the number and try again."

The parcels we send from work end in 001 which denotes the first parcel sent
to that address, the second ends in 002 and so on. Parcels sent from a post
office may have different numbers to the WDM online booking process that we
use.

Don't recorded delivery bar codes end in GB?

P/Force numbers should be in the form :

PB LL NNN NNNN 001 GB

Try your number again, with GB on the end, assuming that the xxxxx in
your number is xx001.

Is it always 001? I thought that was a check digit?

You suggest

>P/Force numbers should be in the form :

PBLLNNNNNNN001GB (spaces removed)

but..

AA000100019GB is the example given on PF's T&T webpage
PBLV83904NN001 is the number I've been given

ParcelForce's example has 3 alphanumerics short of yours and one short
of mine without the GB added to mine.

I've tried sticking GB on the end of mine but same message. Have also
tried knocking out the 001 and substituting GB, and substituting just
001 with GB with the same result. Any further suggestions before I
tell the seller the number is not recognised by the T&T?
