Make your family aware: Scam posing as officers returns

The Team from New Zealand Police

A phone scam is re-emerging with cold calling swindlers claiming to be Police officers.

New Zealand Police are advising the public to be vigilant, after a handful of reports have been made in recent days. Unfortunately, at least two elderly Aucklanders have been conned out of tens of thousands of dollars.

Waitematā CIB’s Detective Senior Sergeant Ryan Bunting says scammers are cold calling, mainly on landlines, and claim to be a Police officer.“They will also provide a fake ID or badge number to make their call seem legitimate,” he says.“This person will carry on and provide a reason for their call: either they are investigating fake bank notes, or that your credit card has been cloned.

“As part of this scam, they will ask you to withdraw money from a nearby bank to be collected or ask you to provide further financial or banking information to aid their investigation.”

Be aware: this is a scam call.

Police are investigating two reports this week, in south Auckland and the North Shore, where two people have fallen victim to the scam. “Both victims withdrew cash from a bank and handed this over to someone who arrived at their door to collect it under the fake cover story,” Detective Senior Sergeant Bunting says.“These victims have had their good-will and trust trodden on by these scammers.”

Investigation staff have ensured there is support available for the victims. Detective Senior Sergeant Bunting says: “Scammers have no ethics whatsoever and will take any opportunity to try and con you.“These scams take many forms, and the offenders trick people under a variety of guises or storylines.”

There are occasions where legitimate Police officers will contact people as part of their duties, he says.

Police are asking the community to be aware and take the opportunity to spread the word amongst friends and family members. “We are particularly keen to ensure elder family members are aware of what is happening,” Detective Senior Sergeant Bunting says. “If anyone receives a call of this nature, hang up.

“If you have had the unfortunate position of being a victim to this scam and have not reported this, we encourage you to report this to Police.”

Please remember:
- Police will never call to ask you for bank details, pin numbers or passwords
- Police do not offer prize money
- Police will not ask you to go to a bank to withdraw money
- If you receive a call out of the blue of a similar nature: challenge the caller to identify themselves, ask for their details.
- Hang up, contact 105 to verify the ID and request the officer to contact you
- If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Plane Sense has met with Wellington International Airport and Airways New Zealand many times since this began and sent even more emails back and forth. They have made it clear that they do not want to revert back to the original flight path, and Airways has said it will not devote resources to investigate an alternative to DMAPs. Both organisatons have stated that the current status quo is their preferred option, so we question how genuine this consultation will be.
This is one of many issues with the 1 December 2022 flight path change, including legal and safety concerns (involving Wellington International Airport, Civil Aviation Authority of NZ and Wellington City Council (as a shareholder).

Porirua is echoing to the sounds of Kapa Haka, thanks to the work of the Ngā Uri o Whiti Te Rā Mai Le Moana Trust, who help local community and rangatahi embrace and connect with their culture.

With support from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board, the local Pasifika and Māori owned Trust is teaching and supporting the Porirua community through their creative arts - Māmās and Pāpās Workshops as well as the Siva (Dance) Workshops.

The Trust initially began as Māori Performing Arts/Kapa Haka group in 2013, and now stands as a cultural hub offering avenues for the locals to engage in activities promoting wellbeing, safety, employment growth, self-development and much more.

By using Creative Arts as a vehicle for positive youth/community development, the Trust aims to leave a legacy of unity and empowerment in the Porirua and wider Wellington community with the continued support of lottery funding grants.

This is just one example of the incredible causes happening in your community, with 100% of Lotto New Zealand’s profits going back to support thousands of great causes all over Aotearoa. So, every time you play any Lotto NZ game, it’s a win for our rangatahi, and it’s a win for our communities.
