Rangiora Community Patrol BBQ

Norma McLaren from Rangiora Community Patrol

We have decided to postpone our planned BBQ outside PaknSave planned for Saturday 19th June as the weather forecast is bleak. It isn't pleasant for our volunteer patrollers to be standing when it is so cold and our customers also. Hopefully it will be better weather for the next sausage sizzle… View moreWe have decided to postpone our planned BBQ outside PaknSave planned for Saturday 19th June as the weather forecast is bleak.

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