Gardaí in Donegal are warning the public to be vigilant for fraudulent texts which appear to come from banks.
The texts prompt customers to click on a link, but the advice from gardaí is to never click on links in an unsolicited text, email or cold calls.
– Do not use reply or call the number supplied by these texts.
– Never give away personal data like PIN number, card numbers, passwords, one time codes, PPS numbers
– If you have responded to such a text or paid the scammers, contact your bank immediately for a recall.
– It is also important to report the matter to your local Garda Station.
