Those scammers who email or WhatsApp you telling you they have millions ready to deposit in your bank account are now using the native language to try and convince people they are genuine.

This one landed in Meath Live’s inbox earlier.

Dia duit a chara, is mise arís Alima .. Tá mé fós ag fanacht leis an bhfreagra ar an ríomhphost a sheol mé chugat níos luaithe.

Our limited knowledge told us that basically Alima was waiting for a reply to his previous email.

Problem is we didn’t get a previous email and we don’t really think Almira is fluent in Irish.

So we sent him a reply telling him where to go in French!

We’ll keep you posted if he replies.
