    Get these the whole time – Kiwibank ones about twice a week or more. Admittedly some are via an organization’s emai address which is re-directed to me and which is unfortunately a ‘sitting duck’ for harvesting. I cannot believe that TelstraClear and the other local ISP’s cannot filter these out. It would be hardly be rocket science. The phishers seem to think I bank with the other NZ banks as well as some UK ‘high street’ banks.
