2 American Tourists Robbed In Northland

Two American visitors have been robbed whilst sandboarding on dunes in Shipwreck Bay near Ahipara in Northland. Further details may be found here: Theft ruins holiday

Other tourists have also been robbed in this area, including Canadian Cybil Litwiller whose car was broken into and three bags were stolen, including those containing all of her holiday possessions. Fortunately her passport wasn't in the vehicle at the time.

  1. I was robbed in Paihia, car was broken into and a number of things stolen, this was in a public car park in the daytime too!!!!!!!!!!! Consumer goods are so expensive for the average person here and there is this attitude that tourists are fodder, moneybags to break open and hold their hands for the coins to come out, and the poverty of material goods combined with the dehumanising attitude towards foreigners leads to a lot of larceny and fraudulent charging. It isn't like foreigners are human. They are walking moneybags to the Kiwis and nothing more than that.
