Frauds and Scams: Information on Keeping Safe

As you are aware there was a recent serious cyber-attack on the HSE, which has been described as sophisticated high level fraud.                 

Digital, or online, fraud has become more prevalent, and the older generation has now become a prime target for this area of criminality.

We all need to understand the implications of this, and our best defence is to stay informed and alert.  Below is a short document from Age Action which has some good information to help you defend yourself in this area.  There is also a site is called Fraud Smart, which is operated by the Irish Banking and Payments Federation – you can click this link and go to the Personal section for good advice.                                                                                                  

Our new adage is – Stay Safe and Stay Secure  – take steps to be safe and steps to be secure in your on-line activities.
