Donegal Gardai have issued a new warning to the public over a rogue scam alert involving a bogus An Post account.
Members of the public are receiving the text messages pretending to be from the national postal delivery service.
The text requests that you click on the link provided in relation to a delivery that you are expecting.
Once you click on the link you are asked to make a small payment in order for your delivery to progress.
However, local Gardai have warned that this is a scam.
A spokesperson said “If you receive a text such as this then please delete it. Never enter bank details in an attempt to pay this small fee as a very large payment will be taken from your account!
“If you are expecting a delivery and are in doubt then please make enquiries with the relevant delivery service. Please advise older or vulnerable people in relation to this scam.”Tags:
