AIB warn customers about text message debit card scam

Whether its WhatsApp or email, it seems as thought no method of communication is safe from scams at the moment.

AIB has taken to Facebook today to warn its customers of a scam that's doing the rounds and trying to get bank details of unsuspecting customers.

Sharing a screenshot of the text message scam to their Facebook page, AIB wrote: "Received a text like this example claiming your ‘card is locked’? This is not a genuine AIB message. Please do not respond."

The text message purports to be from AIB and tells customers that their debit card has been locked, and to ring the phone number provided to unlock it. One of the telltale signs that it's a fake is that the number provided is a British one.

Here's what to expect from the scam:

So now that you know, don't fall for it!
