NZ RED Cross on April 25, 2017

I donated the Red Cross some money. Are you saying it doesn't go to them?

ACampbell on June 06, 2017

$265 taken from account - unknown source

Dean on October 04, 2017

NZ RED CROSS. A donation in my case but could be for online sales as well.

Lyn on March 29, 2020

NZ Red Cross - mine was also a donation - would be better if "NZ Red Cross" appeared on payers' bank statements rather than the over-abbreviated "Nzrc" !

Flo on January 19, 2021

Was a donation to Red Cross. Agree with Lyn's comment above.

LifeChange on July 30, 2021

NZRC NZ took $6.64 fraudulently out of my business account. This was then followed up by various other attempts at making fraufulent transactions which my bank fortunately stopped.

Ezzard on August 31, 2021

Taken $336 from my credit card it’s a scam

Theresa Gardiner on September 08, 2021

Made a donation to Red Cross on Sept 2. Did not buy anything from your shop. Have not received a receipt for my donation as yet. Looking like a fraud.

Sami nithan Lemaya on September 13, 2021

Nzrc just took $350 from my account. How can I get it back it help stop seeking my account zB

Jon Barfoot on January 25, 2022

Just made a payment thru bnz bank as being a legit transaction is this a scam

Sharon Hayward on March 13, 2022

I paid $50 to Red Cross after following a link on Stuff. I got a receipt for my donation but it had no dollar amount on it. I understand nzrc is the Red Cross and I thought the link on Stuff would be legit. Will mot be making further donations 😥 if I can't trust they haven't been hacked.

Pam Robertson on June 10, 2022

$100 taken from our credit card

Hamiora tahana on August 01, 2022

I don't know why she made me put money in when there's something else that just popped up out of the blue that's all

Malcolm on September 04, 2022

POS NZRC Online Shop turned up on my bank statmenet - was suspicious for a start, but then realised it was NZ Red Cross first aid course I paid for online

Phillippa on February 12, 2023

Booked a first aid course and that’s what the charge is for

neeha on February 15, 2023

i donated for eartquake victims. so is it scam??

marcel authier on February 22, 2023

There is a suspicious element in that presentation to take advantage of people's willingness to donate to the Red Cross for resent disasters. No further donations from us with that address.

Sally on 23 February 2023 on February 24, 2023

I'm hoping this was a donation to Red Cross for the Flood Relief Fund!

Jan Akdersley on February 24, 2023

Also hope it was a $200 donation to Red Criss fur flood victims!

Jenny Brewer on February 27, 2023

Made a donation to flood relief, but not this much. Feel violated

JennieK on March 08, 2023

Red Cross - please mark this as a donation to avoid the guessing on the credit card

Raewyn on March 10, 2023

Made a donation to Flood relief on Feb 17 but it came out of my husband’s credit card not mine ! No receipt or acknowledgement received.

Lorraine sutherland on March 20, 2023

I donated $1000 from our trust to RC for recent disaster. this now appears on my statement as NZRC online acct!!!!!! Is this a scam n has it not gone to RC?????, 😢🫢

Cary H on March 20, 2023

I also made an online donation to the Red Cross disaster fund. I received a tax receipt by email the same day with the amount donated shown clearly, which is exactly what you would expect. However like many on this site I did not recognise the transaction when my credit card statement came through a month later. I had forgotten about my donation, and the description 'NZRC Online Shop' didn't jog my memory at all. I eventually checked my email again and re-read the receipt which reconfirmed that the payment was legitimate.

Sara on April 30, 2023

Same as above - donated to the Red Cross fund after the cyclone, and am doing my GST tax return today and saw 'NZRC Online Shop' and had to look up what it was. This charge is legit in my case.
