in2tel has been made aware of a scam call that is hitting businesses and consumers that is coming from Irish geographical numbers. The scam call states that your broadband is about to expire and to then press 1.

Examples of numbers doing the scam are:

  • 00429747213
  • 00238842141
  • 00526136523

If you receive one of these calls, do not provide any personal information, for example, banking details/PPS number/credit card details/name and address/passport numbers etc.

If your are still unsure, contact your provider using the contact details found on their website, to verify the message was real.

Unfortunately there is no way to identify a scam call number, and they can resemble a very normal, familiar, geographical or international number that we would come across on a daily basis.
