We’ve received reports from business owners who have received emails from a sender claiming to be “Consumer Affairs”.
Emails come from compt.dept.sr@outlook saying they work on behalf of Consumer Affairs and the company they work for has a complaint lodged against the business. There is a link in the email to go through to the complaint file.
The Consumer Protection team at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, (which was originally established from the Ministry of Consumer Affairs) advises not to click on any suspicious links from unknown email addresses.
If you receive an email from someone you don't know that directs you to a website, it may be a scam. When you click on the link, it may install malware software on your computer.
Don’t click on any links or attachments from unknown senders.
