Neighbourly hopes to keep you safe by keeping you informed of the latest scams circulating. This week, we are sharing two common text message scams:

NZTA / Waka Kotahi scam:
- The scam is a text message saying it's from New Zealand Transport Agency Waka Kotahi, and it encourages the recipient to pay an overdue road toll by visiting a fake website, threatening to take the matter to court within 15 days if they don’t pay up.
- The aim is to trick people into giving away their personal details or pay them money.
- While it is not the first time toll payments have been utilised by scammers, the threat of court action could see more people fall victim.
- The sender will either be a unknown phone number or unknown email address.
Want to report one of these scams? Do so, on Netsafe

NZ Post scam:
- This scam arrives by test message and says it's from NZ Post.
- The premise is that delivery of your parcel was unsuccessful so in order to rearrange delivery. you must click on a link to give your correct address.
- The aim is to trick people into giving away their personal details or pay them money.
- NZ Post advises people not to click the link, but to report the message to the Department of Internal Affairs by forwarding it to 7726.
Think you may have fallen prey to a scam? Get in touch with Netsafe or contact your bank if it involved your bank details.

Remember, if you didn't expect the message and you are now asked to share personal details or money, then stop contact and seek advice elsewhere.

Feel free to share any below that you've encountered recently. This may help others across the country be aware.

An 84-year-old was left www.waikatotimes.co.nz...
|feeling insecure and vulnerable in one of Hamilton’s “bad neighbourhoods” after police cut down her wire fence chasing suspected robbers|.

More than four months after the incident the woman, who mostly lives by herself, says she is “disgusted with the police” and their lack of action - especially as her section backs onto a gully often used as a thoroughfare for people up to no good.

In a strange twist, police contacted her son about the repairs only hours after being approached by the Waikato Times for comment.

3 stacked m3 of firewood originally from Blaze Firewood in Ngaruawahia in 2020 - now surplus to requirements. Wood is seasoned but may be rain wet.
Equal to about 4.5 thrown m3 of firewood, (the way most firewood is sold), according to the consumer website.

You will need to pick this wood up from Huntly town and load it all yourself - no one is available at this end to help. It's stacked about 20 metres across a lawn from the driveway.
Will throw in approx 1.5 m3 of smaller wood free if you want it.

The country’s flagship mainland ecological island project has only two months to find half a million dollars before cutting back its vital conservation work or letting staff go.

The future for Maungatautari Sanctuary Mountain looks increasingly uncertain, with Jobs for Nature funding ending this month, a $150,000 overdraft, and requests for additional support from the Department of Conservation being so far unsuccessful.

“We need central government to come to the table," manager Helen Hughes says.
