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

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.
