Bank of Ireland customers have been affected by a text scam, targeting their account details.

Users have been speaking out about suspicious text messages they have received, claiming to be from Bank of Ireland, asking them to verify details.

However, the bank has now said that no such message has been sent, and to report it immediately.

“I’ve just been stung by a very sophisticated Bank of Ireland scam. Bank of Ireland say people all over the country are getting caught,” a customer of BOI told Cork’s C103 radio station.

“This is a sophisticated Bank of Ireland hack going on at the moment. You are sent a text from “365 online” that states “Your BOI account has been suspended” and provides a link to reverify your account. The link takes you to an identical, secure BOI website. DO NOT re-enter your info. It will ask you for ID details, which may include mobile or email.

“The BOI website is and IDENTICAL COPY of the real BOI site. Do NOT use it. It’s very convincing. BOI will never send you a link to follow on your phone. Please share this far and wide. BOI tell me a lot of people are being caught. CHECK YOUR ACCOUNTS!

Do not reply to or follow any of the instructions provided, regardless of how genuine they may appear.”
