Spark Scam

Manfred from Tawa

Just received an automated phone call advising me that Spark is disconnecting my Phone and broadband. Obvious a scam.

Any thoughts on the picture and where it was taken?

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.

Lost cat seen in Tawa Main Rd south of Sunrise Boulevard

Grant Neighbourly Lead from Johnsonville

This cat was observed in a somewhat distressed state just south of Sunrise Boulevard along the Main Road in Tawa earlier this evening. It did not look like it knew where it was. Does anyone recognise it? (Sorry about the poor quality of the images.)
