A number of people applying for visas for Ireland have received emails from a fraudulent email address requesting the payment on a 'Security Deposit' as proof of sufficient funds for travel to Ireland.
The fraudulent email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is NOT linked to the INIS, and if you receive an email from this addres you should not reply to it. The official email address for visa application queries is email@example.com.
If you have received any email asking for your bank details or money, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to investigate.
