Never send your card or pin number to anyone by email and switch from WiFi to 3 or 4G before making payments.

Read terms and conditions - and don't commit to a series of recurring payments - especial when free trials are offered.

Retailers are also warned they too can be the target of online frauds so check details and be cautious.

If you do have any suspicions - report them to your local Garda station and to your bank.
