Got one of these today about renewing my registration and it is very convincing, even the site it takes you to looks identical to the real thing. I could see it fooling the average person. They are getting more sophisticated.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Thread from a few months ago

 

Blah, blah, blah,

 

Until NZTA stop using PoLi as a payment method I'm not inclined to give them much credit in terms of preventing fraud...

Yeah quoted earlier thread is mine. Couldn't believe I was taken in. Lots wouldn't realise that you don't need a driver's license to re-license a vehicle, so a reasonable chance they have harvested a number of driver's license details.

Better deal than NZTA is offering too. Almost $30 cheaper than my real registration.
