Bomb threat emails affecting New Zealanders

CERT NZ is aware of bomb threat blackmail emails being received both internationally and in New Zealand.

While this is likely to be an opportunistic scam, New Zealand Police are working to confirm the validity of the threats. If you receive the email, we encourage you to contact New Zealand Police on 111.

The emails appear to be very similar to emails received overseas, which are believed to be scam threats.
