Is the vodafonenz.co.nz website a scam?

I was sent a message that said it came from  Vodafone <noreply@vodafone.co.nz>

On clicking the link in the email I was taken to the domain vodafonenz.co.nz.

This had my alarm bells ringing as it was not the standard Vodafone NZ website address.

I did a check of the domain and it is registered to a company called FCB New Zealand who appears to be an advertising company and not Vodafone.

The message says the following:

Hi there
Are you a prezzie-shaker? A gift-guesser? A sneak-a-peeker?
As a special thanks from Vodafone Rewards this Christmas, you can shake a whole pile of presents. Then choose which three you’d like best, and go in the draw to win them!
There are 110 incredible prizes up for grabs. Like a family trip to the Gold Coast, five brand new Panasonic TVs, $1,000 Vodafone Broadband credit, and a $500 petrol voucher.
From your team at Vodafone, have a very Merry Christmas and a great summer.

 Is this company authorized by vodafone to offer these prizes under your name and the email genuine or is it a fishing scam?
