Warning: man making fraudulent offers to sell emergency torches in CBD

News from Wellington Police
A man has gone into a number of office buildings in Wellington claiming to be contracted by the Wellington City Council. He has advised them that he is there to sell emergency torches, which can be collected from the Wellington Central Police Station.

There is NO such contract and there is NO stock of emergency torches at the Police Station.

There is the potential for a number of further businesses to be targeted by this man with similar offers. He may be in possession of ID cards which are likely to be fraudulently made or altered.

If you believe you have been targeted or notice a male come into your place of work who fits this mode of operation, please contact the Police immediately.
