Garda scam techbuzzireland

Over the last few days I have received several emails to with the latest scam doing the rounds claiming to be from An Garda Síochána regarding child pornography, and more, see the email in full below, naturally reported to the Garda I have yet to hear back from them which is a disgrace considering the contents in the email and how serious this is. Not only have I emailed them I have tried to get their attention on Twitter too yesterday.

This email will catch some out and probably but most will see that it is indeed a scam, in the email it will claim that your PC will be seized and placed under arrest and slapped on the national offenders registry. As with all dodgy emails just delete them straight away and report to a Garda station, you should get a response there. They have however put out notice today of the scam that was reported yesterday and you should also check their website for more

 

The email in full from this morning, same as others just different email addresses.
