Fraudulent Calls - beware! An update.

Updated at 4.30pm:

In the space of a few hours, we have been alerted to another ‘phishing scam’ – this just shows our members how prevalent these scams are! This time, members of the public are being targeted by text message, asking them to click on a link to review a ‘Docusign Document’, the link then seeks to determine details about their email account, thus compromising that account.

Again we remind our members not to click on any link that they are not expecting to receive and always check back with who you are expecting to receive a link from – call us anytime on 057 93 51780 to verify.

We have been notified of a “vishing scam” whereby persons are receiving calls from mobile phone numbers with a recorded message stating the caller is from the “Garda FIU” and that “suspicious transactions” have taken place on “your account”.

The recorded message requests the person to “dial 1” to rectify the issue.

(FIU Ireland is the Financial Intelligence Unit of An Garda Siochána)

Please be aware that these calls are absolutely not from FIU Ireland and are coming from different mobile phone numbers including 086-7652500, 087-2742110 & 089-9412301.

If you should receive such a call, please DO NOT follow any instructions in the recorded message, which could ultimately lead you to being the victims of deception and at a financial loss.

If you receive such a call, please let us know – call our office on 057 93 51780!
