Phone Scam

The Diocesan Office has received the following advice which we would like to share with you: The Irish Cellular Industry Association (ICIA), an alliance of Meteor, 3 and Vodafone issued a warning to its customers advising them to avoid the following scam.

The ICIA issues these guidelines to its customers if they receive a call from an international number that they don’t recognise:  Do not call the number back: If it is a legitimate call, then the chances are that the caller will call you back or leave you a voicemail.  Be vigilant about protecting your number whenever possible, ensuring you are careful when answering calls to numbers you don’t recognise or calling an unrecognised number back after a missed call.  Particular care should be taken when responding to calls from unknown numbers beginning with +247.  The scam is a telecoms industry-wide problem.
