Itemised money receipts from shops

Sunil from Manurewa

Please ask for & collect your itemised money receipt from the store you buy your daily needs to ascertain & report price gouging. Have noticed many stores simply saying 'thank you' & expecting you to move on.... This indicates a dishonest motive & I have had a few such experiences. These stores press down on the goods on the scales which increases the weight so you get charged for a higher weight. Not having the receipt would leave you with no proof of what you have been charged for. Sometimes, you are charged for goods not received/bought. Refusing an itemised receipt should be the prerogative of the customer & giving the customer a receipt must be mandatory on the part of the seller. Let's not be ripped off by unscrupulous business owners today, during the COVID-19 pandemic, nor after. Make it a point to get a receipt for any transaction that you make.

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
