NZTA license renewal scam circulating

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

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

Nix minute a little car pulls up out jumps a large Maori man offering to help he stood in the water and directed me forward showing where the path was. Made my day I love this stuff lots of good people out there.
And before anybody jumps on me I also identify as Maori a descendant of the Ngati Raukawa tribe.

Hi Whangārei,

Three tools have been trialled or used by Police to search publicly available information during investigations, but they will not reveal which ones.

Some of these have sparked controversy overseas, including one tool that was used to track Black Lives Matter protesters or monitor electronic chatter.

Police Commissioner Andrew Coster has defended using these digital tools, and faced criticism for it, with digital rights groups worried online surveillance is escalating.

Auckland technologist Andrew Chen has argued police need to more transparent when deploying a tool and its justification.

Police said the 2020 stocktake was a "snapshot" only and was only revealing what it could to build public confidence.

Set in the small Welsh seaside village of Llareggub (read it backwards), "Under Milk Wood" follows the activities of a group of eccentric (and sometimes bawdy) villagers over a 24-hour period. Two narrators are used to paint the pictures of the village and introduce the 70 characters. This production uses the definitive radio script with its magical use of the English language.

Dates and prices attached.
