Keeping you and your money safe - Seminar Series 





In October, ASB Bank and Age Concern New Zealand partnered together to help keep you and your money safe. Our nationwide campaign raised awareness about financial safety - including financial abuse, scamming and personal online security. 

Elder abuse is a serious issue in New Zealand. 54% of elder abuse cases seen by Age Concern involves elder abuse and neglect. Age Concern New Zealand and ASB Bank are determined to protect your money from financial abuse and scams. Through our campaign we delivered presentations across the country and created resoruces which showed how to keep you and your money safe. 

Useful Resources about Online Safety:  
Little Black Book of Scams Produced by the Commission for Financial Capability, The Little Black Book of Scams outlines how scammers target their victims and trick them into parting with their money, gives tips on how people can protect themselves, points out the ‘red flags’ that give away a scam, what to do if you’ve fallen for one, and the various agencies to which you can report different types of scams. 

Passwords Keep you Safe- CERT NZ have created this resource to help you create strong passwords for online accounts.

Questions about safety- Age Concern New Zealand have developed a brochure which outlines what happens when you contact Age Concern with an elder abuse case.
