Do not respond to scams

Fraud Awareness Week 2010 kicks off on 1 March with the aim of raising awareness about how to spot scams, how to protect against them and how to report them (via the Scamwatch website) to keep others safe.

Fraud Awareness Week is run by a joint-agency group, led by the Ministry of Consumer Affairs and the Commerce Commission. Several private sector organisations are also involved.

The major key message for people is not to respond to scammers. Don’t engage, don’t give them details, don’t respond at all.
