THE public has been urged to be aware of the latest scam calls, which have targeted numerous people in Donegal.
Gardaí say they have received ‘a lot of calls’ this week in relation to scam calls purporting to be from Revenue/Department of Social Protection.
The caller has informed the recipient in many of these calls that there is a warrant out for their arrest and that their PPS number has been linked to illegal activity such as drug activity or money laundering.
A Garda spokesperson said: @Should anybody receive a similar type of call, our advice is to hang up and do not engage or provide personal data.
“Revenue/Dept of Social Protection will never contact you and request personal information via a phonecall or a text message.
“Anyone who mistakenly provides personal information in response to this type of call should contact their Bank immediately if they have provided financial details and also contact the Gardaí.”
