Hoax “Special Branch” letters received in Donegal

Gardai are warning people to be wary of letters purporting to be from Special Branch.

Gardai in Milford say they have received reports of letters looking for information, and advising the recipients to travel to a garda station at a specific time.

They say the letters have a Garda crest and look genuine, but no such letters have issued, and anyone with queries should check with their local garda station.

A senior garda officer said they have no idea what the motive for this is, and confirmed a nunmber of such letters have been received in Falcarragh.
