Gardai issue warning over new bank card phone scam

Gardai have issued a warning to people of a new phone scam requesting bank details from customers.

"There is an increase in fraudulent calls claiming to be your Bank or Visa/MasterCard advising of a fraud on your Debit/Credit Card," authorities said.

They went on to say, "if you receive such a call and are uncertain if it’s genuine, call the number on the back of your card."

People are urged not to engage with suspected fraudulent callers.
