New Bank of Ireland SMS scam seems rampant. #Scams @bankofireland

Recently there was a scam which involved AIB,GMAIL and Primark and over the weekend one has been doing the rounds via sms or what is known as Smishing/Phishing where you will get a link and be directed another to a site similar to the official site the scammer tries to portray. This is purely an attempt to steal your information and that is it. As usual just ignore ,delete and block then report to your bank.

I got the sms this morning and several people have contacted me with the same yesterday so pass it on to your family and friends. You have been warned. Back in Feb this year a similar scam was doing the rounds where people where getting calls and emails to this time however it seems to be just the sms for now anyway.

Numbers to look out for are 086-1801444 – 086-1801445 – 0861801466

Banks will never send sms requesting the above.
