Kilkenny gardai warn of new Bitcoin scam, victim loses ‘substantial’ amount of money

Kilkenny gardai have issued a warning for people to be aware of a new Bitcoin scam in which one local person lost “a substantial amount of money”.

They have also urged members of the public to be vigilant of investment scams and to be fraud aware in the countdown to Christmas.

In some cases, the fraudsters have websites and claim to be regulated in other jurisdictions. Others lead victims to believe that celebrities and/or well-known business people are endorsing them.

A local Garda spokesperson explained how the scam operates: “The victim is contacted by a person almost immediately upon them entering their phone numbers in contact boxes on the websites and in some cases, on the advice of the caller they downloaded links which allowed the caller take control of their computer.

“In many cases the caller persuaded the IPs to give over log in details and pins and gave control of their bank a/c to the caller. Once the money is transferred or once the IP asks difficult questions, contact is broken off. The callers are aggressive sales persons and offer once in a lifetime opportunity which ‘MUST BE TAKEN NOW’.

Gardai warned members of the public: “If it seems too good to be true it usually is.”

They have urged anyone who comes across similar investment fraud scams to contact their local Garda station.
