NZTA license renewal scam circulating

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

A new email scam impersonating the NZTA is being sent around telling vehicle owners their licenses are due.

The email directs the recipient to renew the funds through clicking a 'Renew Now' button at the bottom corner of the email. It then takes the individual to fake website that gets them to fill in personal details.

CERT NZ, the government authority responsible for cyber security said in a tweet, that anyone who receives this email should report it directly to Waka Kotahi (NZTA).

How to spot a phishing scam:
- NZTA will only send an email through if an individual has contacted them first.
- Email addresses will always end in @nzta.govt.nz, @enews.nzta.govt.nz or @reply.nzta.govt.nz.
- The email may be missing specific details that the NZTA will have on file: such as your plate number, the date your vehicle license is due and vehicle make and model.
- Hover over buttons and links to see if the pop-up will take you to a genuine government (.govt.nz) website

Neighbourly will update this message as further information comes to hand.

Hi,

Looking for a house for myself, my partner and 5 year old son. My partner and I both work full time and have excellent references for the house we’re in currently which we’ve been living in for the past 5 years, we do have a dog which we have references for as well from our current landlord and neighbours.

Our budget is $550 a week and we can also pay a pet bond on top of this

Thanks!
Alesha
