Donegal gardai warn of postal scam

Gardaí in Donegal are warning those who are still waiting on Christmas postal deliveries of a new email and text message scam.

Deliveries due over the Christmas period are still being sent to households due to a backlog.

The scam claims that a delivery attempt was made but there is a customs or delivery charge outstanding, which is untrue.

Clicking the website link in the message will lead customers to a replica of official sites seeking credit card information.

Gardaí advise people to contact companies only through verified phone or email addresses and ignore anything that seems suspicious.
