October update from our Chief Executive

30 Sep 2016

In this issue you will find Money Penny talking about scams and more scams. Money Penny presents a case study which you may find very interesting. In these days of low investment rates it can be very tempting to ignore any of the warning signs and then easily become a target of conmen (and women) and fraudsters.

Remember also, that we, nor any other financial institution or bank will ever ask for your banking details in an email. If you receive an email that does – do not reply or click on any links within the email itself. Simply delete it!

For any of you that have teenagers (children or grandchildren) I urge you to take some time to read about our Future Saver account. This account is specifically designed for teenagers as we know that it is critical that learning about managing money starts young. Our Future Saver account allows teenagers to experiment with managing their money and with a little help from their family, they will start to understand and implement the disciplines that will create good money habits for the rest of their lives.

As always, if you have any feedback, please contact me directly on 04 471 4850 or email helen.hatchard@policecu.org.nz.

Take care

Helen
