Electric Ireland warns on phishing scam

Electric Ireland says it has become aware of a phishing scam targetting some of its customers.

The company says a number of individuals may have received an email claiming to be from Electric Ireland, saying they were eligible for a refund.

The scam email asks the customer for bank details and a scan of their passport.

Electric Ireland says it did not send the email and is advising anyone who received it not to click on the link or reply.

The company has reported the matter to the Gardai.
