Telco advise on Christchurch donation scams
Vodafone, Spark, Vocus and 2degrees are warning all
customers to be cautious of scammers looking to take
advantage of Kiwi generosity and benefit from the
Christchurch terror attack through fraudulent donations.
There have been multiple incidents of fake donation
websites, social media requests, phishing emails, calls,
txts and door-to-door solicitations. To ensure donations
make it to the intended victims, please take the advice of
CERT NZ, the government agency that oversees cybersecurity,
and donate directly on registered charity or bank websites,
rather than using links in emails or on social media.
Please report any suspicious online activity to CERT on https://www.cert.govt.nz/businesses-and-individuals/report-an-issue/
