Fake "Irish Water" email scam, has "Irish Water" customer details being compromised again?

The hated sleazy "Irish Water" has warned its so called "customers" to be aware of an email scam.
I know the vast majority of ordinary decent taxpayers know Fine Gaels "Irish Water" is a scam company anyway and for them to assert that they have "customers" is a total misnomer, but I digress a little.

Customers warned not to open Irish Water "account maintenance email"
"IRISH WATER IS warning customers not to click links in an email purporting to be from the company.
Customers have received an email in recent days advising them that there is account maintenance underway and they have to log in through the email.This, however, is a phishing email.The company confirmed via Twitter today that it had not sent any emails requesting personal details"
.

Its bad enough that Fianna Fail's owned Fine Gael minions totally support "Irish Water" in its brazen attempt to steal money from ordinary decent taxpayers to enrich their cronies but it is ironic that "Irish Water" are warning of fake emails purporting to be from themselves. The real issue is, has "Irish Water's" customer (sic) details being breached and compromised once again? I think we should be told. Does anyone have more details they would like to share about the "Irish Water" scam emails?

I started getting something similar a few weeks ago and assumed it was an attempt by IW to get me to interact with then so they could therefore class me as a 'customer'. They were binned immediately.

"Irish Water" are a special case as only the lowest for of scum supports such craven barrels of sleaze as "Irish Water". And it is ironic to see a corrupt company being worried about losing money to email scammers :roll:

Oh by the way I do have a life and part of it is making life hell for Fianna Fail's owned sleazy corrupt FG T.D's and Ministers. I really enjoyed seeing so many of them losing their seats and being kicked out of government in the last election, I did of course assist locally in so many losing their seats ;):rolleyes::lol:

When crooks are running the country, I suppose they feel they have free reign.

I can see the con-artists planning this: "where can we find a group of suckers who'll believe anything?" BINGO!

Find an excuse for the low compliance rate.

Yeah great idea, Paddy won't pay due to this new email scam.

Truth is, Paddy didn't buy into all the other scams.
IW has been just one big scam from the start.
The CONservation grant was another one of their pathetic scams.
