Gardai in Donegal are warning the public about an increasing number of local bogus calls claiming to be from Garda Headquarters.
They say these are scam callers and have warned people just to simply hang up.
A spokesperson said “We continue to warn the public in relation to a recent phone scam where the scammer(s) are using official Garda numbers & impersonating members of An Garda Síochána.
A number of people have contacted us in recent days after they received a call that appeared to come from Garda Headquarters. This is a scam call.
“Hang up the phone, DON’T call the number back and never share personal information with such callers.”
