‘Drug trafficking, money laundering and PPS numbers’ – Kilkenny gardai warn of new phone scam

Kilkenny gardai have urged members of the public to beware of the latest phone scam doing the rounds.

In the latest swindle, fraudsters are calling unsuspecting members of the public falsely claiming to from Revenue.

A local Garda spokesperson said the voices “appear to be recorded, foreign accents and in some cases electronic voices”.

The caller claims your PPS number has been compromised and that a lawsuit has been initiated for drug trafficking and money laundering.

But the Garda spokesperson stressed: “Revenue will never contact you this way. Do not engage, hang up, these numbers can be blocked by contacting your service provider. Also report to your local Garda Station.”
