Police warning about bogus demands for payment

1 min read

Police are warning about bogus telephone calls being made which demand payment to the energy company Nova Energy, with the caller threatening to cut off power if payment is not made.

Police say anyone who receives such a call can verify whether it is genuine by calling Nova on 0800 668 236.

You should not make any payment until you have verified the call and are satisfied it is genuinely from Nova.

Police are investigating the calls, and would like to hear from anyone who believes they have been targeted.

Any information can be provided to Detective Craig Whitley at Wellington CIB on 04 381 2000.
