Slovenia Phone Scam.

John from East Invercargill

Yesterday I had a missed call , I never carry my phone , which surprised me by coming from Slovenia.
I assumed it must be a scam of some sort as I haven't been too any of the old Yugoslavia nor know anyone there. Upon internet checking it was most likely a scam that works this way. A call comes from Slovenia or Serbia or Armenia or others and they let the phone ring twice and hang up. The objective is to get YOU to phone back and see who is calling. If you do you are charged excessive connection and other fees which they pocket and you lose. Moral of the story is if you get a strange call from some country that you have no connection too and they hang up before you can answer DO NOT CALL BACK. If it is important or real the caller will try again until you answer. I assume they would be block calling , ie calling numbers in numerical order.

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.
