A member of the public is encouraging the public to be aware…
That is after a new scam has reportedly reached Wexford town.
A card, with details apparently from ‘Templemore’ Garda Station, shows that a new scam has reached Wexford. A card, posted through an individual’s letterbox, indicates that the person has not paid for ‘petrol’ and that they have to ring a phone number to rectify the issue.
The number provided on the card was not that of Tullamore Garda Station.
When the person in question did contact Tullamore Garda Station, Gardaí informed the Wexford-based individual that they were not aware of any case on their Pulse system and warned that it is a scam.
If the person did ring the number provided on the card, they could be encouraged to give their bank card details to pay for the ‘petrol’. The scammers, in turn, would have access to the person’s credit card details.
Images of the ‘scam’ were posted onto social media to warn people and to encourage the public to remain cautious.
