Gardaí issue warning over scams

Gardaí say they regularly receive reports from people who have fallen victim to various types of scams.

Trust
Members are urging people to not trust every text message/e-mail or phone call that they receive.
They are also warning people to never disclose personal/financial details to anyone no matter who they say they are or why they say they need them.

People are urged not to click on a link contained in an unsolicited text or e-mail and not to download an app or apps onto your phone or PC at the request of a caller.

Concerned

If people are concerned they are asked to contact the bank or organisation named via a verified contact method and to enquire directly.
Please do contact An Garda Síochána and your financial institution if you have fallen victim to a scam of any description.
