Emails were sent out to Irish Water customers and others, claiming to be the company and requesting users to log in through a hyperlink for 'annual account maintenance.'

The bogus email, which used the Irish Water logo, said: "Irish Water is performing the annual account maintenance procedure. Please login to your account and complete the requested actions."

A spokeswoman for Irish Water said the scam had nothing to do with its website and that all customer account details were secure.
