I object to the new second level domain "bank.nz". I do not see a need for
this and it will do very little to reduce online fraud of any type.

Most scammers do not bother registering domains similar to the ones being
phished. They simply send those being scammed to sites that look the same
as the authentic one but with a completely different URL.

Most people do not even see the URL as they receive in an HTML e-mail.
All they see is the link.

Banks can do more to reduce phishing simply by educating their clients that e-mail
is insecure and that a bank will not send a link to them via e-mail.
