Waikato police warn that if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. This message comes after 15 people were scammed into purchasing extremely cheap return tickets to Tonga. Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Andy Du Bear warns that residents in south Aukland and South Island have also been targeted in the scam.
