FIU Ireland has been notified of a "vishing scam" whereby members are receiving calls from mobile phone numbers with a recorded message stating the caller is from the “Garda FIU” and that “suspicious transactions” have taken place on "your account”. The recorded message requests the person to “dial 1” to rectify the issue. The calls, which are obviously not from FIU Ireland, are coming from different mobile phone numbers including 086-7652500, 087-2742110 & 089-9412301. Please do not follow any instructions in the recorded message, which could ultimately lead to members being the victims of deception and at a financial loss.
