An Garda Siochana and the Road Safety Authority (RSA) would like make the public aware of a scam which has been reported to Gardaí.
A fraudulent Facebook page purposing to be the National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) is inviting people to contact them via WhatsApp to apply for or renew their driving licence. They are then seeking payment of over €200.
This is a scam to part people with their money. The NDLS does not have any official social media pages. The only way to contact the NDLS is through the official RSA social media pages or online through www.rsa.ieor www.ndls.ie.
This fraudulent page has been reported to Facebook to be removed. Investigations are ongoing.
Note to editor: An Garda Siochana is not putting forward a spokesperson on this matter at this time. Images demonstrating this scam can be found on our social media channels - https://www.facebook.com/angardasiochana/photos/pcb.10158023977628001/10158023974303001/?type=3&theater
