Vishing Scam - Be Aware
FIU Ireland has been notified of a "vishing scam" whereby persons are receiving calls from mobile phone numbers with a recorded message stating the caller is from the “Garda FIU” and that “suspicious transactions” have taken place on "your account”. The recorded message requests the person to “dial 1” to rectify the issue.
The calls, which are obviously not from FIU Ireland, are coming from different mobile phone numbers including 086-7652500, 087-2742110 & 089-9412301.
