Gardai urging people to be wary of latest scams


Gardai in Donegal are again urging people to be wary of a number of scams doing the rounds.
Gardai received a report today of a man receiving a WhatsApp message from an unknown woman which included a number of videos.
The man contacted Gardai as he feared it may lead to a blackmail attempt.
Other fraudulent texts doing the rounds include one purporting to be from a commercial airline company claiming the recipient has won in their monthly draw.
Another claims the victim’s parcel has been detained and includes a link for them to follow.
Gardai say the Spanish lotto scam continues to target people in the county.
People are being reminded to not click on a link of any sort, do not entertain these scams, delete the text or email and simply ignore them.
Gardai are advising that if you have entered a draw and receive notification that you have won a prize then check directly with the draw holder and do not provide your bank/personal details to anyone.
Anyone who feels they have been the victim of a scam of any sort is asked to report the matter to Gardai.
