ASB cracks down on frauds and scams in new campaign by The Monkeys

Major bank ASB have launched their new campaign that is cracking down on the ongoing and multi-layered frauds and scams plaguing New Zealand.

Helping to keep Kiwis informed and vigilant, the campaign is serving as a first line of defence against scams.

“Online fraud and scams are a rapidly growing problem here and around the world, carried out by very sophisticated criminals and criminal organisations. Scams are constantly evolving and are increasingly complex so it’s important New Zealanders’ knowledge of scams continues to evolve too,” says ASB Chief Marketing Officer, Helen Fitzsimons.

“This campaign aims to reach as many New Zealanders as possible, wherever they consume their media, whether that is a phone screen, the six o-clock news or a newspaper, Instagram or TikTok, or during their morning commute.”

The campaign includes a TV ad featuring much-loved ASB characters Ben and Amy, with some common scam red flags and a reminder about sharing personal information. Attention grabbing content will also show up on billboards, digital and will feature in an extensive social media campaign, which includes alerts about current wide-spread scams. It is intended to help people stop and think and be extra vigilant in their daily lives. 

As the campaign rolls out, news content across online, the New Zealand Herald, TVNZ Breakfast, and regular updates from ASB fraud experts during 1News at Six will help to build more in-depth knowledge of fraud and scams, as well as spotlighting significant scams as they happen.

ASB is working closely with other banks, Police and other affected industries such as telecommunications companies on a range of significant fraud fighting initiatives.
