Gardaí in County Monaghan are warning the public about fraudulent emails purporting to be from a priest in Carrickmacross.
A similar scam within the county was reported in late January of this year.
The emails request donations for various supposed fundraising activities, such as medical treatments.
Gardaí are urging the public not to click on the link or make a donation, and to instead delete the email.
Anyone who has become a victim of the scam is asked to report the incident to gardaí and an investigation into the fraudulent emails is on-going.
