Minister warning on Internet Scam


Tipperary Minister Tom Hayes has warned people to be aware of a number of  possible email scams which are circulating.

In recent months, criminals have set up legitimate looking websites with the intention of accessing people’s banking details.

An email, which appears to be from the Revenue Commissioners, is currently doing the rounds and is looking for victims to send personal information via email or pop-ups.

Junior Minister for Agriculture, Tom Hayes TD, is urging people to be vigilant and states that neither Revenue nor any Irish Bank will ever request personal information via email. The TD also asks people to never reply to such emails and to report any suspicious mail to Gardai.
