Another possible SCAM

Lesley from West End

This is a precautionary post!!!
Yesterday one of my elderly Covid 19 phoning circle got a telephone call from supposedly “Work and Social Development” asking him as he was a pensioner did he live alone and did he need any help/assistance for shopping etc. He was a bit confused and told the man on the phone what arrangements he had in place.
He rang me and said that he thought it was nice that a government department was concerned about his welfare like that. I didn’t say anything to him but I immediately telephoned and waited approximately thirty minutes on hold on the Police 105 number. They took a note of my concern and then connected me onto another area to report and discuss the matter.
To the best of their knowledge they were not aware of Social Development or WINZ or any other Government Department making
such calls to elderly folks. However it would be noted and looked into.
Has anyone else had an experience similar?
Take care everyone, keep safe and PLEASE follow the rules
Lesley and family

Will you make the most of changes to DIY rules?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?

The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.
