An associate of mine forwarded this voicemail to me for a laugh.  Apparently the New Zealand Government Unclaimed Money Department wants to give him $6000....

 

 

 

Of course this is a scam.

IRD does have a list of people who have unclaimed money on their website, probably millions of dollars there. They don't call anyone though.

I have heard of this fund. I believe it's $18,000 richer after Winston paid some money into it recently....
