Malicious email impersonating NZ Post circulating

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

New Zealand Post have published a warning to customers after several variations of a scam email were reported over the past 24 hours.

The email - while appearing legitimate - asks to correct personal details because of a failed parcel delivery.

The email directs the recipient to 'schedule a new delivery'. If any individual has received these emails, NZ Post has advised to delete it immediately.

For more information on the scam, please see the NZ Post's Cyber Security Alerts page.
