Scam

Fraudsters Never Rest

REMINDER: Fraudsters do not rest and will use the current situation to their advantage.

An Garda Siochana have warned of the potential for phishing and social engineering scams.

A phishing scam begins with an unsolicited email, text, WhatsApp or phone call from someone claiming to be from a legitimate organisation. They will gain your confidence to access your personal information.

Social engineering scams exploit the charitable nature of people via social media or in person by asking for donations to charitable organisations which are either fake or which are legitimate but whose name is being used to extort money.
