Telephone Scam

‘I wish to let you know that reports have been received that a telephone scam is operating and targeting any mobile number with the prefix ‘087’ irrespective of your telephone provider.


If you receive a telephone call from ‘0038681897022‘ (last two digits can vary), please do notANSWER or RETURN this call as you may be charged as much as €150.  

This is a premium number hence the large calling fee.  

It is believed that this scam originates in Slovenia.


Please inform your staff, family and friends to be aware of any such calls and not to respond to any call in any way.’


I received the above from a Garda friend, be careful and mind who you answer.
