Neighbourly hopes to keep you safe by keeping you informed of the latest scams circulating. This week, we are sharing two common text message scams:

NZTA / Waka Kotahi scam:
- The scam is a text message saying it's from New Zealand Transport Agency Waka Kotahi, and it encourages the recipient to pay an overdue road toll by visiting a fake website, threatening to take the matter to court within 15 days if they don’t pay up.
- The aim is to trick people into giving away their personal details or pay them money.
- While it is not the first time toll payments have been utilised by scammers, the threat of court action could see more people fall victim.
- The sender will either be a unknown phone number or unknown email address.
Want to report one of these scams? Do so, on Netsafe

NZ Post scam:
- This scam arrives by test message and says it's from NZ Post.
- The premise is that delivery of your parcel was unsuccessful so in order to rearrange delivery. you must click on a link to give your correct address.
- The aim is to trick people into giving away their personal details or pay them money.
- NZ Post advises people not to click the link, but to report the message to the Department of Internal Affairs by forwarding it to 7726.
Think you may have fallen prey to a scam? Get in touch with Netsafe or contact your bank if it involved your bank details.

Remember, if you didn't expect the message and you are now asked to share personal details or money, then stop contact and seek advice elsewhere.

Feel free to share any below that you've encountered recently. This may help others across the country be aware.

Why nz government won't ban fireworks sales

The New Zealand government has refrained from banning the sale of fireworks to the public for a variety of reasons, including the challenges associated with enforcement and the existing public demand for retail fireworks. Here are the key reasons behind the government's decision:

1. Enforcement Challenges: Policing a ban on the sale of fireworks to the public would present significant enforcement challenges. Regulating and monitoring the sale of fireworks, especially in private settings, could strain law enforcement resources and present practical difficulties for effective enforcement.
2. Public Demand: There is an existing demand from the public for retail fireworks in New Zealand. Many individuals and communities enjoy fireworks as part of cultural celebrations and events, such as Guy Fawkes and New Year's Eve. Banning fireworks sales could potentially be met with resistance from those who value fireworks as a form of entertainment and tradition.
3. Cultural Significance: Fireworks are deeply rooted in cultural celebrations in New Zealand, and they hold significance for many people during festive occasions. Banning fireworks sales entirely could impact these cultural practices and traditions that have been part of the country's heritage for a long time.
4. Economic Considerations: The fireworks industry supports businesses and events that rely on fireworks for various celebrations. A ban on fireworks sales could have adverse effects on these industries, leading to economic repercussions and potentially affecting the livelihoods of those involved in the industry.
5. Balancing Stakeholder Interests: The government likely considers the interests of various stakeholders, including industry representatives, event organizers, and the general public who enjoy fireworks displays, in making decisions about regulating fireworks sales.

In summary, the decision of the New Zealand government not to ban fireworks sales to the public is influenced by considerations of enforcement challenges, public demand, cultural significance, economic impacts, and the need to balance stakeholder interests.
