• A Napier retailer warns a man claiming to be from "Google business" is offering a preferential listing for $295 - which must be paid via paypal. Ignore calls like this.

• Businesses are also targeted by a "contract award letter" seemingly from the Commissioner of Works. It offers a contract then demands US$100,000. Ignore this, too.
