Irish Water has warned the public to be vigilant against an email phishing scam impersonating the state agency and requesting account details.

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.
