Poll: Would you expect your parents to help you into your first home?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Almost a quarter of young people say the older generations should help first-home buyers into the property market, a new survey shows.

Westpac NZ polled 1000 people about their opinion on parents assisting their children into their first homes.

It found widespread acceptance of the idea: More than half the parents said they would loan money interest-free and only 38 per cent would expect it to be paid back.

? Scam ?

Kerry from Bethlehem

Hi All,
Just want to share what I’ve experienced ~ I think it is a scam. Please keep yourselves safe.
In the last 3 days since Sunday morning I have received 13 phone calls on my cell phone from ‘No Caller ID’. I didn’t answer the first few times they called, but as they were persistent I thought it might be important so I answered. It is automated, no real people, the message starts “This is not a marketing call” but they don’t identify themselves at all. They then proceed to tell me my year of birth then ask me to key in my day and month of birth. That’s when I hung up, and have denied further calls of my time.
I have contacted my provider which is 2Degrees. They were very helpful and said that I had done the right thing buy hanging up on the caller and then reporting them. 2Degrees are going to investigate the matter for me.
Has anyone experienced the ‘delight’ of these nuisance calls?
Stay safe people. Keep your personal info private.
