INIS issues warning about possible fraud via email

Posted on

INIS have issued a warning about reports they have received regarding fraudulent emails that appear to have been sent by INIS but have not. Read the full warning issued by INIS below.

The Irish Naturalisation & Immigration Service (INIS) has been made aware of reports of fraudulent offer letters being sent via email by unauthorised persons/groups using an INIS logo and also an application form/certificate claiming to be from the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation in an effort to solicit fees from prospective candidates.

These offer letters may at first sight appear legitimate and include application forms to be filled out by prospective candidates in order to get your personal information and to obtain monies by fraudulent means. Prospective candidates are instructed by these unauthorised personnel to pay them processing and administration fees.

Please be advised that these offers are FRAUDULENT and do not come from either the INIS or Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation. This is an attempted FRAUD.

Customers are asked to be on alert and be suspicious of any such offers seeking payment. If someone demands payment of any monies, contact INIS or An Garda Síochána immediately.
