[Video: Paul and Anna in conversation.]
Paul: Well, they’re thieves aren’t they.
[Text on screen: More than half of Kiwis over 65 have encountered a scam in the last 12 months.]
Anna: We thought we were careful.
Anna: And we didn’t think it would ever happen to us.
Paul: That's right.
Anna: That's what leaves us feeling very violated and vulnerable.
Paul: Oh yes, they know what they are doing and it’s very scary.
Anna: And what information about us do they have? Still. And we didn’t really tell anybody afterwards because we felt a little bit silly and embarrassed.
Paul: Hm, completely.
[Video: Christian and Mark in conversation.]
Christian: Mum and dad have put on a pretty brave face. They didn’t want to talk about it, in fact, they didn’t even tell us did they?
Christian: I guess when it actually happens to your own family it is pretty shocking, like it hits home.
Mark: I feel really worried about it happening to my parents now, you just don’t know what these people can do.
Christian: To con them into giving them money, to giving their passwords, to getting them to click on links. It’s too easy these days and yeah, we just have to encourage our parents to be vigilant.
[Text on screen: Remembering a few tips from ANZ reduces the risk of being scammed significantly.]
Frankie (a child): I love Nona and Poppa because they give me big squishy cuddles and kisses, and I want to keep them safe.
Voiceover: To help your whanau, jump on the ANZ website, download the tips, get messy with your tamariki, and take a photo.
[Video: Christian and Frankie are painting banking safety tip posters. Frankie is holding his poster which says ‘Don’t click links in unexpected texts or emails’ but drops it before Mark can take a photo on his phone.]
Voiceover: Or try and take a photo, to pop on your nana and poppa’s phone.
Anna: It’s just such a good reminder that I’ll never get sick of looking at.
