Hospitality NZ notified of scam by epay

In an update, Hospitality NZ revealed it has been advised by epay that scams have been encountered in accom businesses that can use Paysafe vouchers.

According to the update, scammers are posing as epay agents over the phone and asking accom operators to print out paysafe vouchers. There are usually multiple phone calls involved to build trust, so operators are being warned never to provide vouchers or pins over the phone.

“No member of epay or any other organisation will ask a business to print a voucher and read the pin number over the phone or in person,” Hospitality NZ reiterated.

If you are concerned that fraud has taken place, please call the police at Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
