The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is warning of what appears to be a scam email sent to businesses in the financial sector.
The scam email, purportedly from a Reserve Bank staff member, encourages recipients to click on a link to view “New Transaction Guidelines”.
The email was not sent by the Reserve Bank, and clicking on the link could potentially expose the recipient’s computer to a virus.
