Go to www.papakura courier.co.nz to see how the Pay Fairtrade Forward Day works. Many of us do it at least once a day without batting an eye- lid at the cost or sparing a thought for the work that goes into getting your coffee to your local cafe. Papakura woman Rennie Qin is asking that today people hit local fair trade cafes and share their coffee experience with a complete stranger. Today is Pay Fairtrade For- ward Day when people are asked to pay for a coffee and leave it as a free gift for the next customer. Miss Qin says the gesture, hoped to spark a domino effect throughout the day, is part of a national campaign to break the poverty cycle. The 18-year-old former top scholar at ACG Strathallan College and now second year medical student at Auckland University has spent the past two months establishing and promoting the campaign. Pay Fairtrade Forward is based on an international movement Pay It Forward but with a fair trade twist, Miss Qin says. I believe this movement will be a huge hit because Kiwis are such a fun-loving and generous bunch, she says Through the domino effect, you are influencing so many people, both third world farmers and cafe customers. Miss Qin, is a part of P3 Foundation, a charitable organisation formed by young people working together to create a world without pov- erty. Fair trade products ensure farmers are getting a fair wage as well as an additional Fairtrade Premium which is invested in social and com- munity development pro- jects, she says. Supported by Fairtrade ANZ and Oxfam, the exper- iment takes place nationwide in fair trade cafes. Go to www.p3foundation.org. MISSED Solutions to crossword 1359 Job offer comes with stolen cheques Police say overseas scammers are up to their tricks again -- this time targeting members of the public through a bogus job advertisement. The scam involves an adver- tisement which ran in the Manukau Courier on March 29 headed Job opportunity in D&P Textile Limited. The ad may also have appeared in other pub- lications. The ad, which is full of grammatical errors, says the company is seeking staff to start immediately for a num- ber of roles with no experience needed. Police communications man- ager Natalie Swart says applicants are asked to email a specified address then they re offered a job and asked to open an account with ASB. Stolen cheques are posted to the applicants who are instructed to deposit the money into their bank account for a few days then withdraw the money and send overseas via Western Union Transfers, she says. As the scam appears to have originated overseas, unfortunately police have very limited ability to investigate and prosecute. Anyone who believes they have been a victim of this or other scams is encouraged to visit the Consumer Affairs Department scam website to report it.
