Kerry people warned about banking scam text

Gardai are warning the public to be aware of a banking scam following the targeting of a Tralee woman who lost a substantial amount of money.
The scammers sent a text to the woman purporting to be from her bank and asking her to update her personal details using a link in the message.
The woman was then contacted by her bank to say a large amount of money had been transferred from her account to a foreign bank account.
Gardai say a bank will never contact you over the phone or using text to update personal details.
