Bank of Ireland customers have been urged to be wary of the latest bout of scam calls and emails.

Posting a warning on social media, the bank warned its customers of receiving any correspondence which claims to be from the bank. 

"We're aware that a fraudster is making calls and sending emails claiming to be from BOI,"  the statement read.

It is understood that a number of customers have reported being the subject of such activity after sending tweets to the bank's online customer care account.

"If you receive a call on foot of a tweet to us and want to check it’s genuine please DM us," a bank spokesperson wrote.

"Never disclose your full log in details for your business/personal account".

Last month, it was reported that that Bank of Ireland customers received emails, texts or calls from fraudsters shortly after interacting with the bank on Twitter or Facebook.
