Scammers posing as Police officers

Be aware, pesky phone scammers’ latest move may be posing as Police officers seeking your financial details.

New Zealand Police are aware of reports emerging this month where Kiwis have been contacted on the phone by someone claiming to be an officer. The officer will claim to be from a particular department, tell you that you have been a victim of fraud or scam, and begin to try and obtain further financial information from you. This is a scam.

Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Bolton, from Auckland City’s Financial Crime Unit, says there have been at least a dozen reports made to Police, and these scam calls are largely being made to landlines. “While Police do not have accurate numbers of how many of these scam calls have been received, it is important that the public are aware,” he says. “Police will make some enquiries into these calls, but our experience has shown that often phone-based scammers will be operating from overseas. “We appreciate the vigilance of those who have contact Police so far, as this will help us to make others in the community aware.”

Unfortunately, scams can take many different forms and target victims on different platforms, Detective Senior Sergeant Bolton says. “Scammers are opportunistic and thrive off your trust and good-will. If you receive a call of this nature, do not hand over any personal details.”
New Zealand Police will never contact people seeking their banking details, card numbers, pin numbers or passwords. There are instances where legitimate Police officers will contact you as part of their duties. Police ask that the public remain vigilant.

𝗥𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿:
➡️Police will never ask for details about your bank cards, pin numbers or passwords over the phone.
➡️Trust your instincts. If something doesn't feel right, or is too good to be true, it probably is.
➡️If you are uncertain, ask for the officer’s details. Hang up, contact 105 and request the officer to contact you.
➡️Police aren’t in the business of offering prize money.

If you are in the unfortunate position of being a victim of a scam, please report the matter to Police.
Take the chance to upskill yourself on scam awareness, check for further information on the NetSafe website.

𝗘𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗹 𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗺:
Police are also aware of an email scam that has re-emerged, that claims to be authorities from Police and other justice sector partners. This scam has been subject of previous advisories. We continue to advise people to be extremely cautious when receiving unsolicited emails. Do not reply an the email of this nature under any circumstances.

kia ora lovely neighbours

sorry, probably been asked before - but I'm looking for recommendations for a good reliable reasonable mechanic please

prefer Henderson - but open to suggestions

I have a good friend of mine who recently bought a car from a car dealership in south auckland (trying to move back this way - so car is currently here, out west)

he JUST got it and the transmission has issues - Mazda I think - this is waaay outside my area of expertise - I think he has rights (since he bought it from a dealership...?) - (thankfully, usually it's a 'mate' - & he spends more money getting it fixed, than pay for the car itself, or what it's worth)

anyway - last I heard it was trying to get it fixed from some place - pay them up front ($400, $500)- then try to get money back from the dealership (?) - and/or - trade the FIXED car (paid for out of pocket) in for another one - PAYING THEM yet *more money* - (argh - what?)

also *MY* WoF has expired

have - been going to my mother's old mechanic other side of the city (was her car before she moved into a retirement community in Nelson) - but needed a new battery a few months ago and people were going - you paid HOW much? ($200ish - he said it was new, 3 year warranty - told paid far too much - should have been about $50 ~sigh!~ ) so looking for someone I can TRUST - who won't rip me off, either of us off - reliable, reasonable, trustworthy...

please & thank you!

Just a simple request🙏🏻

Fiona from Henderson

I am sure that I am not alone here with what I am about to say, in fact I know I’m not after all of the people I’ve spoken to.

I am sure that I am not alone here with what I am about to say, in fact I know I’m not after all of the people I’ve spoken to.

There are so many of us who are either giving items away for free or maybe selling them.
The constant issues that we who give items for free or sell them is almost the same one, time after time, again and again and again and ….

What I am struggling with, in fact getting so annoyed by, is the constant ‘no shows’, ‘waste of timers’ – whatever you want to call them.

I am always giving away items here (along with so many), especially garden plants or clippings.
I know that I should sell them and make a few dollars along the way, however, my way of thinking is that so many have helped me get my garden to where it is with their generosity and I feel as though I want to do the exact same thing, hence why I give them away for free.

Please, on behalf of all of us who are giving you items for FREE (and selling them), please turn up when you say you are going to or reply to our replies after we have messaged you with our address details etc …
Please don’t give fake phone numbers and please return our calls if you can’t answer the phone.

Our time is just as important as yours.
All you are doing is making sure that you will never get stuff from us next time you ask as we know that you are just going to waste our time.
You are also making it difficult for those genuine people who are waiting in line to see if there is anything left.

While we understand that real life can step in at a moment’s notice, please let those who are expecting you know of any delays.
We will almost always hold the item for you.
But not letting us know means that so many others are affected and if it’s garden plants, they could die while waiting for you.

Just a couple of questions for those who are no shows:
• Are you waiting for an address so you can scope the place to rip off, as suggested by so many?
• Would it help if we put our items on the curb with a FOR SALE sign with a price so you can actually steal/take them away? Would that make you feel as though you were getting a bargain?

Please, please be mindful, considerate and above all, kind to those who are really trying to be the same to you with their generosity.
