Another day another scam this time it is AIB via email with what would be a convincing look for some folk, AIB will not email you about your bank account like any other bank would asking for details so if you get it,block the sender and report, the more we act on the likes the more we can prevent it happening and see less people being caught out.

 

We of course contacted AIB about this and they also confirm its a scam see the details below and pass it on. Most importantly to note here too is not to download any attachments..
