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:
