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