Have you received any dodgy phone calls in the past couple of days? You're not alone. 

Revenue has issued a warning to people to be aware of bogus phone calls from 'a person purporting to work in Revenue and demanding the immediate payment of a tax bill or stating that a criminal case is being taken against the individual.' 

People are asked to note that the person is not calling from Revenue and if you have received one of these calls you should contact the Collector General's Division on 1890 20 30 70. 

The issue was brought to the Revenue's attention by a number of people including TV3 news reporter Gavan Reilly who posted a screenshot of what seems to be a Dublin number (01 254 8484).
