Scam warning on Red Cross letters
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.
