If somebody asked you to buy a high number of iTunes vouchers, saying it’s urgent, would it set off the alarm bells? If it doesn’t then it should!
Whether it’s a phonecall from IR or the Government asking you to purchase these cards, don’t do it! Your boss will never e-mail you asking to buy itunes vouchers in bulk (and if they do you shouldn’t oblige!). There is a Facebook post from Scamwatch NZ doing the rounds at the moment reminding people that this is not the norm. Be suspicious of any requests to purchase itunes cards. You can check out the facebook post here.
