Police warn against land fraudsters

Police are warning individuals and families aiming to buy land on new sub divisions to double check with them or the Department of Lands to make sure the company is genuine.

The warning on the radio comes following the eviction of some 200 residents of Blandinier Estate due to illegal settlement.

Eye witnesses of the eviction at Blandinier said some families built permanent homes because they believed the company was real.

With lack of sufficient housing in Port Vila, police warn the public to be wary of sweet talking opportunities who pretend to be salesmen for investors offering affordable rates for plots of land on new sub divisions.

Carrying with them false documents, some may take your money and disappear, not to be seen again.
