Bank of Ireland issues warning to customers over scam texts

Take note.

Bank of Ireland has warned customers to be aware of a fraudulent text message being sent to customers purporting to be from the bank.

The bank sent a push notification to customers shortly after 5pm on Friday reminding people they would never ask for them to update personal details by text.

"We are aware of a smishing/fraudulent SMS which has been sent. Bank of Ireland will never send an SMS asking for personal information. Please do not click any links and delete SMS. Thank you," Bank of Ireland wrote on social media.

Bank of Ireland warned that they will never ask customers to do any of the following:

  • end you a text with a link directly to the login page of our online banking channels.
  • Ask you to provide all the digits of your six-digit 365 PIN.
  • Ask you to transfer money out of your account to protect yourself from fraud.
