warning scam email alert

Janet from Raureka

I have had 3 emails in the past 2 days saying I have a parcel waiting to be collected. The first one was easy to figure it was fake it's sender address was a mix of upper and lower case letters which is a total give away for spam. todays one had NZ. post but has uk at the country of origin so also a give away. I also am not expecting anything especially from the uk

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
