Post­card scam uses school name

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

A group of peo­ple are scam­ming res­i­dents into buy­ing packs of post­cards for $5 say­ing it is a fundraiser for a Toko­roa In­ter­me­di­ate camp. How­ever school prin­ci­pal Rus­sell Thomp­son said that is un­true.

‘‘Toko­roa In­ter­me­di­ate is not go­ing on a camp to Welling­ton. Th­ese peo­ple are not do­ing this on be­half of Toko­roa In­ter­me­di­ate,’’ Mr Thomp­son said.

Se­nior Sergeant Graeme Hill of Toko­roa po­lice de­scribed the mat­ter as ‘‘fraud­u­lent’’ and is en­cour­ag­ing lo­cals to dial 111 if they are ap­proached.

‘‘If the per­son sell­ing the items does not have le­git­i­mate iden­ti­fi­ca­tion then don’t even look at it.’’
