An Garda Síochána continues to receive reports from the public.

These calls concern “phising” calls from fraudsters.

Please be warned about the dangers of such calls or texts.

Avoid providing scammers with personal or financial information. 

Be very wary of cold calls,  just because the number looks Irish does not mean it is. Fraudsters use ‘VoIP’ and ‘spoofed’ numbers. 

Detective Superintendent Michael Cryan from the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB ) said:

“Anybody can be a victim, regardless of age or where they live.

Be wary. Stop and think before you click. Do not give away personal data.

If you have been a victim, contact your bank and report the matter to Gardaí’ 

“Always ask the caller their name and their phone number.

If you are concerned,  hang up.

Contact your bank / service provider from a number advertised in a phone book.

Or on your bill or from an online search”

  • Never click on the link of an unsolicited text or email 
  • Never act on advice received or instructions from a cold caller 
  • Never give away personal data like bank account details, PIN numbers.
  • Credit card numbers, passwords, one time codes, PPS numbers, Eircodes 
  • Never download any Apps.
  • These allow the fraudster to take control of your device .
  • If you are expecting a delivery and receive such a text be very careful. 
  • Revenue will not ring you to advise you that you are under investigation 
  • Do not transfer money. 
  • Before taking any action, seek advice from a trusted person. 
  • If you have been a victim,  it’s vital to change your passwords/pin codes. 
  • If you have been a victim report the matter to Gardaí
