Email phishing scams

An Post customers are asked to be on the alert for fake email messages.

For example, an email in current circulation contains a bogus link to our mybills.ie service. Rather, it has been generated by criminals intent on defrauding the public and obtaining cash funds by false pretences.

Other scam messages target customers in different ways. These emails are false, the messages are fake, there is no refund or need to update your profile. The purpose of the email is to capture your financial details for fraudulent use.

We advise customers to always be careful when opening links or attachments received unexpectedly from familiar source or from unknown sources. If in any doubt, call the sender in person to check if the email is real.
