Noted from Siliconrepublic.com – The HSE has warned about a scam website that charges €22 for the EHIC (Europan Health Insurance Card).
The site (www.ehic-card.eu) looks the genuine article. The domain was registered via godaddy on May 5th, and there is also an ehic-card.de domain registered.
The HSE Statement warns that
"Irish Residents are being targeted"
but unfortunately does not mention how. A quick google search on ehic reveals a sponsored ad – these guys are blatant alright.
Of course, the genuine location for Irish people to apply online for free is www.ehic.ie –
