Current phishing & scams

Have you received a suspicious-looking email, SMS text message or phone call that claims to be from ASB? It may be a scam or phish.

Scam text currently circulating in New Zealand

ASB is aware of a text scam currently circulating in New Zealand. The text messages may appear to be from a courier tracking update and contain a link to download an app for the delivery service. This app contains malware designed to steal your banking information.

What you should do if you receive a suspicious text:

  • Do not click on any links.
  • Forward the text message to the Department of Internal Affairs for free on 7726.
  • Delete the text message.

What you should do if you believe the malware has been downloaded onto your device:

  • Call us on 0800 ASB FRAUD to secure your account.
  • Follow the steps listed on the CERT NZ website below.
