Making a spam complaint

Spam is the term given to unwanted junk emails you may receive from individuals or companies in New Zealand and from across the globe.

Spam complaints are dealt with by the Department of Internal Affairs Electronic Messaging Compliance Unit who are based in Wellington and investigate alleged breaches of the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007.
