Notice 1 | Scam alerts: Hoax event registration and Hoax telephone calls


Hoax Event

05 December 2019

It has come to our attention that an event has appeared online relating to human trafficking, which is purporting to be organised by the Department of Justice and Equality. The event asks those registering to attend to pay thousands of Euros to secure a ticket.

Please be aware that this is an attempted fraud. The Department of Justice and Equality has no connection to the event in question.


Hoax Calls from Phone numbers 01 6669100 and 01 6167700

Some customers of ISD (Immigration Service Delivery) have been contacted by telephone by a person purporting to be from ISD asking for payment from Telephone number 01 6669100(GNIB) and 01 6167700(ISD). ISD does not and will not contact applicants by telephone in relation to any such payments to accounts abroad.
