086 Scam Calls Demanding Payment

The Department of Social Protection and the Gardai have issued warnings about 086 scam automated calls. People are getting scam calls from 086 numbers claiming their tax refund is due, their immediate payment of a tax bill is required, or legal actions will be taken against them unless they make payment over the phone via credit/debit card or bank transaction. But, Revenue never asks customers to provide personal information via telephone calls or text messages.
