There's a new phone scam doing the rounds and it's VERY dangerous6th Mar 18 | News
People are being urged to be vigilant of a new scam doing the rounds...
Irish phone users are being warned about a new scam doing the rounds.
Many phone users have been receiving calls that appear to be originating from Bosnia.
If you answer or call back this number you will be asked to hold while they redirect you to a more expensive number and your phone credit is drained or a HEFTY charge is added to your phone bill.
But BE CAREFUL! Many people have been tricked into falling for this scam as the number looks like it's from Ireland as it starts with '087'.
