Fraudsters posing as quake appeal collectors

Fraudsters pretending to collect donations for ANZ New Zealand and emailing for security information asking for your banking details

People should be aware that fraudsters are calling members of the public saying they are representatives from the Bank asking people to donate money into a false account.

ANZ New Zealand is not soliciting donations from the public over the telephone. The public can make donations at any branch of the ANZ or The National Bank.

Fraudsters are also sending out emails asking for internet banking security information – subject heading may include the words Canterbury Earthquake Information.

Please do not respond to any emails or provide banking details under any circumstances. ANZ never asks for such information via email and people should ignore these requests.

It is incredibly poor taste that criminals are trying to take advantage of this tragedy and we encourage the community to be on the alert.
