Auckland Council says it has received reports of people impersonating Council compliance officers to gain entry to people’s homes in the wake of the recent weather event.
“Auckland Council officers will always be in uniform, will drive a council branded vehicle and will carry a council ID card,” Council said in a statement today.
“Please always ask to see this ID before letting them into your home.
“If you have concerns that this has happened to you, or if you are approached by someone you believe is not from the council, please report it to the police by calling 105.”
If you have recently had a visit from a compliance officer and want to verify that they were from the council, email firstname.lastname@example.org to check.
