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
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.

On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag
One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.
This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.
What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
