Bank of Ireland customers are being urged to be careful as a text message phishing scam is doing the rounds.
The warning comes after Gardai have been informed of a number of incidents were customers have been tricked in to handing over their personal banking details.
It is understood that the fraudsters are sending text messages to customers asking them to click on a link claiming that your account has been “limited”
Some of the texts include going to a website called “360mobile.info” to reactivate your account.
Gardai say anyone who receives such a message to delete it and report it to your banking institution.
Meanwhile Bank of Ireland say they would never contact customer via text message asking them for their banking 365 pin or passcode.
People are asked to share this information with their friends, especially their elderly family and friends who may not be on social media and may be susceptible to the scam believing it to be real.
