A local business owner is warning of a sophisticated scam involving cloned cards.
A cloned credit card is where a legitimate card’s details are copied, meaning that transactions can take place without the owner’s knowledge.
Recently, a business based in Co. Galway that sells quads was scammed out of €4,500.
Pious McClout, of Suip Manufacturing, in Dromard, Co. Sligo, that also sells quads, was almost the victim of a similar scam.
He wants other businesses to be on the lookout.
