Gardai are investigating reports of bogus phonecalls to elderly people in the Milford area purporting to be from the Revenue Commissioners.
Gardai say they have received a number of reports from people receiving calls from a number starting with 051347.
They say the number looks like an Irish landline number and the person calling claims to be calling on behalf of the Revenue office.
A Garda spokesman said “The callers in these cases have been very aggressive in their manner and have requested bank and personal details.
“Please advise any elderly or vulnerable neighbours or friends that these scam calls are occurring and to never give their personal/bank details to anyone over the phone.”
