Gardai warn public of new banking text scam

Gardai in Cavan and Monaghan have issued a warning to the public in relation to a new text alert scam.

The text, which appears to come from Bank of Ireland falsely informs people that their account has been frozen and can be reactivated by clicking the link.

A number of people have reported that they received the text, even when they don’t have an account with the bank.

Gardai have asked that the public delete the text message immediately if they receive it, and to make sure they do not provide any personal or banking information.
