She claimed it was wrongly priced. I paid two dollars however tomorrow I will be writing to HfH to see what the ceo has to say. I am of the view I was cheated and I suspect others who go into that shop will be getting cheated too. This is not the first time this woman has overcharged me. My view is that she has a personality defect. While this is being looked into, others may not want to shop there?

Will you be striking for better pay in the Waikato?

ASB customers are being targeted in a "smishing" scam. They've been getting text messages claiming they've been locked out of their bank accounts, but it's really a ruse to get them to hand over their banking details.

ASB is aware of a current SMS ('smishing') scam where people have been sent a text message pretending to be from the bank. The 'smishing' SMS contains a link that once clicked prompts the person to provide personal information and a wide range of details such as login details and their Netcode.

ASB wants to remind everyone that legitimate messages from any bank would never ask customers to supply personal information, login details or second-factor identification.

The ASB Contact Centre is available on 0800 803 804 if a customer is concerned about any suspicious messages they receive. Read more here

After debate around whether Matariki should become a public holiday, ACT leader David Seymour said he was "open" to public holidays being scrapped in New Zealand - well, all but Anzac and Waitangi.

He says people should be able to make their own holiday arrangements, rather than the Government telling us when to take the day off.

We want to know your thoughts. Should people be able to make their own holiday arrangements? Or should we leave our holidays as is?

The Hamilton Press and Neighbourly are on the hunt for Neighbours of the Week.
Whether you live in an apartment or on a rural property, you have neighbours - and knowing your neighbours matters. Connecting with the people who live around you creates a happier, safer and more friendlier neighbourhood - even if it's just greeting them by name over the fence or popping in for an occasional cuppa. That's what Neighbourly is all about after all. Neighbourly aims to restore the neighbourhoods of old, where neighbours knew each other well enough to pop next door to borrow a cup of sugar or help search for a lost pet.
At the same time, we want to celebrate all the good neighbours who are making an extra effort to support others in communities across the Waikato. These are the ones who organise neighbourhood BBQs, help stack their neighbour's firewood or always put their hand up to babysit.
So if you have a have a neighbour that fits the bill, and needs a bit of thanking, let us know. Nominations can be emailed to julie.kaio@stuff.co.nz
