The Little Black Book of Scams - fighting fraudsters!
New Zealanders have a new weapon in their defence against scammers – a booklet detailing different types of scams, how to avoid falling for them, and what to do if you’re caught.
The Little Black Book of Scams has been produced by the Commission for Financial Capability (CFFC). It outlines how scammers target their victims and trick them into parting with their money, gives tips on how people can protect themselves, points out the ‘red flags’ that give away a scam, what to do if you’ve fallen for one, and the various agencies to which you can report different types of scams.
