LAOIS gardaí are warning people to beware of a jury service scam that is currently doing the rounds.

A Laois-Offaly garda spokesperson said yesterday that gardaí have been alerted to a scam, where people have received fraudulent jury service notices by email (pictured).

The email requests people to click on a link to get a jury number. The link instead leads to a website loaded with harmful malware, which allows fraudsters to access credit card details when people buy online.

Gardaí warned: “This is a scam and the public are advised not to click on any links. A genuine jury summons is issued only through the postal system.

“The Courts Service of Ireland will never email a message such as this. Jury summonses are mailed via An Post. Other official communications are sent either by registered post, summons or under warrant.”
