PLEASE SHARE – WE NEED TO WARN PEOPLE : MEGA SCAM ALERT – Irish Water is taking water charges directly from bank accounts without the owner’s knowledge or consent!
A direct debit was taken from Muller Hickey’s business bank account today. He did not sign up with Irish Water, nor did he give them his bank account details.
QUOTE: “Right folks just to be clear. AIB never gave out my bank details. Irish Water applied to my bank using a direct debit originator plus where you don’t have to sign up. They can just go in and take money out of your account. You need to go into your bank and fill in a reclaim form and cancel the Direct debit.”
This case is currently under investigation with a solicitor and the Data Protection Office.
MONITOR YOUR BANK ACCOUNT CAREFULLY – you too might be scammed by Irish Water.
