Police issue scam warning


Pin It

The RCIPS is warning people to keep an eye on their e-mail accounts and to immediately report any suspicious activity.

The latest warning comes after a man reported that his e-mail account had been hacked into and that people had been receiving e-mails, purporting to be from him, asking for cash.

It also appears that people who had hacked into his e-mail also tried to get into his bank account, but were unsuccessful.

RCIPS is advising email account owners who spot any suspicious activity to change their password immediately and to contact their bank to ensure that their accounts have not been compromised.

Anyone who wishes to speak to the RCIPS about how to avoid becoming the victim of online scams should call their nearest police office, or the Financial Crime Unit on 9498797.
