Phone scammers claiming to be from CERT NZ

We’ve learned that scammers are calling homes across New Zealand, claiming to work for CERT NZ.

The scammers will tell you that you have a problem with your computer’s antivirus. They’ll ask you to log on to your computer and follow some steps that they’ll describe over the phone. Following the steps as requested could give the scammers access to your computer, putting your personal and financial details at risk of theft.
