Scam warn­ing on Red Cross let­ters

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Be­ware of a scam let­ter claim­ing to be from the In­ter­na­tional Com­mit­tee of the Red Cross.

The let­ter orig­i­nates from France and is from a man who claims to be from the ICRC’s Euro zone.

It tells the re­cip­i­ent he has some vi­tal in­for­ma­tion for them con­cern­ing in­her­i­tance from a rel­a­tive who has died and asks the per­son to call or email.

An ad­dress on the let­ter can be traced back to a ho­tel in Paris.

New Zealand Red Cross is aware of two peo­ple in Auck­land and four peo­ple in the South Is­land who have re­ceived the let­ter and says peo­ple should not re­spond.
