PHISH hook

The National Consumer Agency are warning people about a scam in which a cheque is mailed to people telling them they've been selected for a grant from the Money Advice and Budgeting Service. To cash the cheque they have to phone a number and are asked for lots of personal details. The fake Bank of Ireland cheques for €1,450 are the latest attempt to entice people to hand over their identities to phishing scammers.
In another part of the forest customs found 4,000 litres of full-strength industrial alcohol being imported through Dublin Port on Tuesday (press release). It was packaged as car wash fluid. Destined for a fake address in County Louth, alcohol would have been used to make counterfeit vodka to be sold through pubs and clubs.
