Government departments in Australia and New Zealand, in collaboration with some local banks and other firms, have launched Fraud Awareness Week 2008 with a website offering two quality posters (one two), a plain leaflet and a tri-fold leaflet.
Their simple message is "Fight the scammers. Don't respond."
The after-the-early-evening-news current affairs program on NZ TV has run stories on a similar theme this week.
The main website address is supposed to be www.SCAMwatch.govt.nz although this currently redirects to www.consumeraffairs.govt.nz/scamwatch/fraud-awareness/FAW2008.html which is ironic really, since misleading links and browser tricks are often part of the scammer's toolbox.
