« BackWest Kerry listener warned over Dingle email scam

email iconWest Kerry people are being warned about a new email scam which purports to come from the presbytery in Dingle.

The email claims that a person well known in the community is in difficulties abroad, having lost her passport in a taxi on holidays.

It’s understood that several people replied to the email, believing it to be genuine, and were then asked to send on 900 Euro to help her out.

One listener who contacted Radio Kerry, said the email seems very authentic and could easily deceive people into believing it’s genuine.

Anyone who receives the email is advised not to respond to it and to delete it straight away.
