An Garda Siochana cyber crime scam - techuzzireland

Last year there was a Garda scam doing the round which had people concerned and it has popped up again this time looking totally different than before. Again this pertains to cyber crime and sex related crimes and is poorly written as the last one was and cites laws brought in March 2007. Again this is just another scam to trick you into handing over money and most likely lots of it. Here is what it looks like below.


Advice once again given and you should take heed of it and never open suspicious emails or text message.

  • Don’t respond to any unsolicited email seeking personal, financial or security advice.
  • Never click on a link or attachment in an unsolicited email.
  • If you believe the email is from a genuine source, verify this independently. Independently means independent of the email sender.
  • Independently verify any requests for information and never use the contact details supplied to you by the caller or texter. Independent means independent of the caller or texter.
