Garda Michael Walsh took to social media to warn people about the scam, after being sent a message himself.

The messages are part of a romance scam, where scammers send messages to targets to try to build up a personal relationship with them, before then fleecing them for cash.

Garda Walsh shared the message he received on LinkedIn, writing: “Romance scam that I received this morning on WhatsApp and in the Irish language.

“Scammers will exploit all opportunities to #scam people.”
