Police Warning About Email Scam

August 1, 2018

 Police are warning about a current email scam asking people to pay up, or have their personal details exposed to friends and family.

 

Police have received reports of the scam from several victims.

 

The scammers send an email stating that malware has been installed on the recipient’s device, and that it’s captured information about them, including a password and potentially embarrassing footage.

 

Anyone who receives an email like this is advised to report it to their local Police as soon as possible.

 

Information on current scams can be found on the Ministry of Consumer Affairs website: www.consumeraffairs.govt.nz/scams
