Warn­ing af­ter bo­gus calls made

Bray People - - NEWS -

GAR­DAI have ad­vised peo­ple to be vig­i­lant in the wake of a num­ber of bo­gus callers in the area.

In the Shankill area, a young man was call­ing to doors last week claim­ing to be a mem­ber of Seomra Bray Youth Cen­tre look­ing for do­na­tions or spon­sor­ship for a walk in aid of the Si­mon Com­mu­nity.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion said that nei­ther Seomra nor any Bray Youth Ser­vice or Cross­care projects or groups raise money in this way.

Mean­while, res­i­dents of Bray re­ceived phone calls from some­one pre­tend­ing to be from Bray Credit Unin.

A mam­ber of Bray Credit Union re­ported one such call. The caller re­quested per­sonal de­tails such as name, ad­dress, and date of birth.

‘We at Bray Credit Union will never phone a mem­ber di­rectly un­less they have re­quested a ser­vice we pro­vide and would be ex­pect­ing a call,’ said the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Garda De­clan Lynch of Bray Garda Sta­tion said any gen­uine caller to a house should be able to pro­vide iden­ti­fi­ca­tion. He said that you are not obliged to an­swer the door, or en­ter­tain any caller of whom you are un­sure. If you have any con­cerns, con­tact the gar­dai.

The Credit Union can be con­tacted on (01) 2862624 and Bray Garda Sta­tion on (01) 6665300.
