IRD scam

Patricia from Kamo

End of tax year has passed and the scammers are at it again. I just received an email from this address - Do Not Reply <my3IR.online.alert@connect.com.fj> - saying I was due a refund and to clink the link given and it would need my credit card details.
Note the address it has come from, always check the address.
The any emails from IRD will come from - <....ird.govt.nz>

Is everybody ready for the rally?!
On Saturday 15th May, Hikurangi is hosting 4 rural rally legs, as well as a refuel stop, and an opportunity to meet the rally drivers and check out their cars up close!
This will be a huge event in the heart of Hikurangi, and it’s FREE to attend! Here’s what we have going on:

-Hikurangi Community Library open day, come along for a wander through our newly upgraded library and see our awesome selection of books and puzzles, and our fresh new children’s & teens area with HEAPS of new books! There’s also a rally based activity table and a rally colouring competition for you to take home with some awesome prizes up for grabs!
-Sausage sizzle, fizzy drinks, and hot coffee right outside the library door, fundraising for an outdoor upgrade!
-Library second hand book sale where every book is $0.50c, also magazines and Hikurangi 2021 calendars!
-An assortment of 5 bouncy castles and an obstacle course available for children, on the Chapel grounds right next door to the library, the kids activities are FREE!
-A “makers and growers” selection of market stalls along the Northern end of George St (from Rouse Motorcycles to 3 Little Birds end).
-A super special “meet the drivers” event between 9.30am and 10.45am, and again between 2.45pm and 4pm, where you can come along and chat with the drivers and get them to sign some awesome rally posters!

NZTA seems broken

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

I've tried to renew my car's rego online yesterday evening. Could load the nzta website, but the page to renew registration would not load.
I dropped them a line about this ..."we are currently experiencing high volumes of email, we may get back to you in 9 days" ... yeah, right, that will be useful.
This morning their whole website appears to be down. So if you need to register your car, you may have to go to the testing station, assuming *they* can get in.
