« BackGardaí warn of new scam targeting restaurants in Kerry

wine, table, restaurantGardaí in Kerry are warning about a new scam targeting restaurants.
Garda Eilish Cronin says the word of warning comes after an attempt was made to deceive a Killarney business.
A man made a booking over the phone for a large group in the restaurant, and gave the name Griffith Walsh; Gardaí say this has been used in other attempted scams.
Garda Cronin says the man sent a cheque for a deposit, but then requested a refund though the bank as the cheque he sent was for €5,000 more the agreed amount, however the restaurant owner alerted Gardaí.
