Did you know that fraudsters use social media and other messaging apps to contact you asking for money or your information?

If you are contacted, please do NOT participate, or provide any personal details or data.

Fraud and scams are getting very sophisticated and often look legitimate, but we are urging you to protect yourself by getting informed.

There are many different types of fraud or scams which you can read more about on An Garda Siochana’s website here.

If you feel like you may have been a victim of online fraud, complaints of online crime or those involving computers should first be made to your local Garda Station.

If it sounds too good to be true, it often is. If unsure, please ask someone you trust for advice.
