Gardai are reminding people never to give out personal details

Gardai have warned the public about a text message ‘smishing’ scam claiming to be from AIB.

The scammers tell customers that their card has been compromised and that they need to click a link to order a new card.

They also say the card needs to be returned to one of three addresses, along with the customers’ PIN and personal details.

The addresses are:

  • Security Centre, 164 New Seskin Court, Arena, Whitestown Way, Dublin 24, D24 A260
  • Security Centre, 31 Rathmines Road Lower, Dublin 6, D06 V4Y1
  • Security Centre, 50 North Circular Road, Dublin 7, D07 V0FY

Gardai are urging people not to respond to these messages.

They advise taking a screenshot, deleting the text and reporting it to their local Garda station.

AIB are reminding customers that they would never request personal details or a PIN.
