Gardaí in Donegal are warning the public to be aware of a text scam claiming to be from the ‘Lotto’.
The authorities have received numerous reports recently from people in the county over the texts.
“The text may even contain the correct surname of the person to whom it was sent and also their correct location,” gardaí said.
“There is a bogus link attached which you are asked to click on. Do not click on the link. Simply delete the message.
“Should anyone have fallen victim to this scam already then we would encourage them to contact Gardaí and their bank if financial details were provided.”
