The transaction actually debits a large amount of money from the retailer’s banks account and credits it to a debit/credit card. He/she then instructs the retailer to throw away the transaction receipt.“Authentic financial organisations should not make unsolicited calls to retailers or other businesses.“The advice is not to follow any instructions. Take the callers full name and contact your Payment Card Service Provider (do not use the no. given by the caller) to check the information is authentic.“If the call is not from your service provider call your local Garda Station,” he added.  DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN ISSUES WARNING OVER FRAUD SCAM was last modified: July 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN ISSUES WARNING OVER FRAUD SCAMlast_img
