    Default Household Scam

    Gardai are investigating a suspected credit card scam at Cork company Abtron, acting on behalf of revenue, the firm who've been collecting property tax payments.

    One thing's for sure, if actual public/civil servants were doing this job, it wouldn't have happened.

    Explain how you're sure of that. Have you worked for the civil service with credit card management in the past? HAve you observed that the controls are different in public/private CC centres? Have you run or investigated this sort of area in the past? How are you "sure" that an individual civil servant isn't as likely to allegedly break the law as an individual private employee?

    Or are you just spouting rubbish?

    Now,now. The vast majority of Gardai are excellent, trustworthy public servants imo.

    I never heard anyone complain about the Gardia until I came onto p.ie

    Not much either Abtran or Revenue could have done about this if he wasn't detected on a pre-employment background check/Garda vetting.

    So my question would be - are Revenue sub-contractors Garda vetted? But even if they are, there's no guarantee that this kind of stuff can be prevented.
