NZ High Commission warns interested fruit pickers of opportunist conmen

The New Zealand High Commission in Honiara has expressed concern that some people in Solomon Islands have been asking for money in exchange for work offers in New Zealand.

The High Commission has issued a warning in the print media against this, telling people not to give money to any person who promises employment in New Zealand.

It says self appointed people are not authorised to do this.

The High Commission says legitimate agents will have a letter from a New Zealand employer authorising them to recruit.

It says any offer of employment must come from a New Zealand employer.

It asks people who are unsure about any offers of employment to check with the High Commission.

The High Commission advises anyone who already paid money to people to arrange an offer of employment to report the matter to the police.

It says nearly 300 Solomon Islands citizens are now working in New Zealand under the new seasonal work scheme for fruit and grape picking and the scheme is working well.
