ASB customers are being targeted in a "smishing" scam. They've been getting text messages claiming they've been locked out of their bank accounts, but it's really a ruse to get them to hand over their banking details.

ASB is aware of a current SMS ('smishing') scam where people have been sent a text message pretending to be from the bank. The 'smishing' SMS contains a link that once clicked prompts the person to provide personal information and a wide range of details such as login details and their Netcode.

ASB wants to remind everyone that legitimate messages from any bank would never ask customers to supply personal information, login details or second-factor identification.

The ASB Contact Centre is available on 0800 803 804 if a customer is concerned about any suspicious messages they receive. Read more here

He is very loved and missed. We noticed him missing about 6pm last night. He was seen at Steele Park. He will be scared and we are worried that he has been taken. He doesn't just wander off on his own as is normally off his chain and inside or on the doorstep. Please if you know anything contact me ASAP.
We don't have any money but if our dog is returned we will do whatever we can to thank whoever gets him back to us.

After debate around whether Matariki should become a public holiday, ACT leader David Seymour said he was "open" to public holidays being scrapped in New Zealand - well, all but Anzac and Waitangi.

He says people should be able to make their own holiday arrangements, rather than the Government telling us when to take the day off.

We want to know your thoughts. Should people be able to make their own holiday arrangements? Or should we leave our holidays as is?
