This week, 13-19 November, is Fraud Awareness Week.
Financial scamming is an everyday problem for many New Zealanders. A scam is an illegal scheme that persuades people and businesses to “invest” in a (non-existent) project. These can come in many forms, from scam emails to phone calls. So how can you keep yourself safe from these fraudulent activities?
NZCA (an association of independent Chartered Accountants) has released a newsletter warning us of the dangers of fraud and what you can do to protect yourself from scams. You can read the newsletter here.
