Police Appeal to Public in Skimming Investigation
New Zealand Police National News Release
10:41am 2 May 2006


Henderson Police have released images of two unidentified males whom they believe are closely linked to the recent BNZ skimming incidents throughout Auckland.

Police say they are making an appeal to the public for any sightings, or other available information on the identity and possible whereabouts of these two men.

Detective Brendon Pearson, of the Henderson Fraud Squad, says the first male was seen purchasing phone cards at a liquor store on Quay Street in CBD Auckland, on the 27th March 2006. Police believe he was closely linked to the two foreign nationals while they were living at the Century on Anzac apartment building in Auckland City.

"The nationality of this particular male is still unknown. Police would like to know of his whereabouts, and whether or not this individual is currently residing in New Zealand."

"The second male withdrew money from an ATM at the ASB, Glen Eden Branch on the 23rd of March 2006. His identity or nationality is again still unknown. The male used a popular phone card which the skimming information had been loaded onto," he said.

"Skimming is a global phenomenon and over $100,000.00 was taken by this group from various ATM machines in Auckland, Australia, and Canada during March 2006."

"The enquiry team want to talk to both these men about their recent phone card purchases and fraudulent transactions. If anyone has any information that will assist us to identify and locate these individuals, call us immediately," Detective Pearson said.
