Scam Alert - July 2021

Gardaí are urging the public to spread the word of fraud prevention as people continue to fall victim to scams on a daily basis after receiving calls from fraudsters claiming to be from Government and State Agencies such as An Garda Síochána and the Department of Social Protection.
On receipt of these communications, the advice of An Garda Síochána is as follows:
Do not engage with the caller.
Do not return the call.
Do not follow the automated instructions – Do not press 1 etc.
Never disclose personal or financial information.
• Hang up and block the number if possible.
Whilst the scammers may change their stories and methods, their goal is always the same – they want to access your sensitive information and get their hands on your money.
If you believe you may have fallen victim to a scam, contact your financial institution and report the matter to local Gardaí.
Always keep your personal information safe and be fraud aware.
