Gardaí are urging people to make sure they’re using a reputable website if they’re applying for a loan online.

They’ve issued the warning about fraudulent websites offering unsecured loans to people in an attempt to defraud them.

People caught have lost money after paying a deposit but not getting any loan payments.

Sergeant Dick Bolger from Bailieborough Garda Station had this warning for locals this week.
