An Garda Síochána Advice on Motor Insurance Scam

Ghost Broking is a term given to two possible types of fraud relating to false Insurance documents.  

There are two ways to obtain a valid Certificate of Motor Insurance:

1. By purchasing one directly from a reputable Insurance Company that is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

2. By purchasing one from an Insurance Broker otherwise known as an Insurance Intermediary that is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

Rental Scam Awareness Advice to students and parents

Gardaí are advising people to be wary of rental scams, particularly at this time of year when students are returning to college. While rental scams occur throughout the year there is a spike due to a new generation of 3rd level students seeking accommodation.

The scams fall into three broad categories; (1) the scammer claims to be out of the country and can’t show you the property and requests a deposit, (2) the scammer is living at the property and shows a number of people around, gets a deposit from several people and disappears with the money; and (3) the transaction appears normal until the renter finds that the keys don’t work and the landlord has disappeared.

An Garda Síochána’s Public Attitudes Survey for Quarter 1 2017

An Garda Síochána’s Public Attitudes Survey for Q1 2017 has shown a fall over the last year in the number of people who said they were victims of crime, improved satisfaction among victims who reported their crime to Gardaí, and a reduction in the fear of crime.

It also found that 92% of people had mid to high trust in An Garda Síochána in the quarter, and perceptions of the effectiveness and capability of the Garda organisation had improved since the same period a year ago.

Renewed Appeal in relation to Missing Person Deirdre Jacob

“Kildare Gardai are renewing their appeal for information in relation to Deirdre Jacob who has been missing for the last 19 years. Deirdre was last seen crossing the road towards the entrance to her home at Roseberry, Newbridge, Co. Kildare at 3pm on Tuesday 28th July 1998.

She was 18 years old at the time, 5’3”, slim build with grey/green eyes and dark chin length hair. She was wearing a navy v neck t-shirt with white trim on collar and sleeves, navy or black straight jeans and blue Nike runners. She was carrying a distinctive black satchel type bag with long shoulder straps and the word CAT in large yellow capital letters on the side. This bag has never been located and in addition to appealing for any information no matter how small Gardai are interested in hearing from anyone who has ever found or noticed a bag similar to this. Deirdre’s parents Michael and Bernadette have been actively searching for their daughter since the 28th July 1998. They recently produced a new poster with the help of the Newbridge/Kildare Lions Club. This poster has been circulated throughout Leinster by the different branches of the  Lions Club.

Please report any information you may have to the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666 111 or Newbridge Garda Station at 045-431212”.
