Incident Room Set Up At Thurles Garda Station To Investigate Recent Credit Card Fraud.

An incident room has been established in Thurles Garda Station, Thurles, Co. Tipperary and a senior investigating officer has been appointed, following a number of reports from retailers of people buying building and agricultural materials in stores around Ireland, using fraudulent credit cards.

Reports from store retailers claim that once transactions are authorised, using the fraudulent credit cards, consumers leave the premises with their purchased goods, before the retailer discovers later that the card details provided are fraudulent.

The incidents of customers using fraudulent credit cards are understood to be happening not just in Co. Tipperary, but also in the neighbouring counties of Clare, Limerick, Offaly, Laois, Kildare, Cork, Waterford, Clare and Limerick, and also in counties Leitrim, Westmeath, Monaghan, Kerry, Meath and Wexford.

In recent days (April 17th last) we reported that a father and son team, operating a vehicle with false number plates, had been arrested. See report HERE.

Gardaí in Tipperary are now asking any potential victims, at any other locations, who have not yet contacted An Garda Síochána in relation to such issues, to please contact Thurles Garda Station – Tel: 0504 25100, the Garda Confidential Line – Tel: 1800 666 111, or indeed any Garda Station, so that such matters can be fully investigated.
