A number of members of the public have contacted gardaí in Kilkenny in recent days reporting that have received phone calls from a Waterford number (051) purporting to be from Revenue. 

"This is a scam - we are warning people not  to give out bank details to anyone over the phone," a garda spokesperson said.
