We at Finance Ireland are aware of the recent increase in fraud in the Financial Services Sector.
We advise customers and members of the public to remain vigilant against online fraud and cyber activity, in particular we are asking you to be wary of fake websites and social media accounts imitating Finance Ireland (and other financial institutions).
Remember, Finance Ireland does not;
- Solicit direct lending applications – our lending is conducted via intermediaries or by application to our office;
- Offer or conduct lending of any kind via any Social Media platform; or
- Request that a fee be paid in advance of a personal loan being issued.
If in any doubt about whether a communication from us is genuine, please give us a call at 01 642 5380 and we will be happy to confirm whether a communication from us is genuine.
Helpful advice from the Central Bank of Ireland on how to avoid scams and falling victim to unauthorised activity is available here.
