However, it has led to a call for business owners to be careful.

Speaking to the Donegal News, Ms Toni Forrester, CEO of Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce said banks had confirmed Donegal online businesses were being targeted and traders needed to be extremely careful.

“The loss of stock is costly to businesses and they need to be vigilant,” she said.
