We are currently talking to the company to gain a further understanding of what has occurred.

A dedicated investigation team is being established in Christchurch including specialist police staff with expertise in this area.

Police are also liaising with relevant partner agencies in New Zealand and overseas.

The investigation is still in its very early stages and police are unable to provide further information tonight

We expect to provide an update tomorrow.

I remember when my bank was hacked and I irredeemably lost all my money. Oh wait that doesn't happen. Btfo cryptonerds
Reminds me of that time the bank shut down my account, froze all my money for an arbitrary amount of time until I fought them in court. (this didn't actually happen to me, but it does happen to people in my country).
