PHONE SCAMWARNING

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Auck­land Coun­cil is warn­ing res­i­dents of a phone scam in­volv­ing some­one claim­ing to be from ‘‘Auck­land Dis­trict Coun­cil’’ and de­mand­ing money. The per­son is ask­ing for bank ac­count de­tails to pay off an in­fringe­ment no­tice. One woman who handed over her de­tails had a di­rect debit set up in her name and $150 taken from her ac­count. Auck­land Coun­cil says they would never ask for bank ac­count de­tails over the phone. Any­one who re­ceives a call of this na­ture should record the phone num­ber the call is com­ing from if pos­si­ble, then con­tact and pass the de­tails on to po­lice.
