Tree felling scam warning in Wellington

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 7/04/2017

Wellington Police are warning of "forceful" people offering tree felling services in Miramar.

Police say individuals are targeting the suburb in the city's south-east, going door-to-door to offer their services.

Often payment is required in cash.

A police spokesman says the tree felling is either not done or is completed to a very poor standard, once payment is given.

"They are being very forceful in trying to secure this work and repeat business."
