    Default 250,000 NZ'ers use at least one false name

    Nearly a quarter of a million New Zealanders use at least one false name, and more than half of those have not paid their bills.

    No wonder we, as landlords, have such a hard time completing credit checks!

    It's all part of a socialist conspiracy, right?
    .
    With all the Draconian new laws for residential rental LLs, perhaps AirBnB would be better? To avoid any hassle in Hawke's Bay, consult Be My Hostess. Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!

    The Hawke. Brilliant. Bob, perchance?

    If you were called Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii, I think you'd use an alter ego too.

    I note a lot of Asians use alias so that people can pronounce their names (as do other nationalities where their official name is traditional - even Maoris do this).

    I use an alias, Davo36. Only 249,999 left to figure out.

    I still use my maiden name in daily communication. It doesn't get quizzical looks or if pronounced "can you spell that for me?" response....like my married name = Krisjanous which in itself is wrong it's supposed to be 'Krisjanovs'.

    So I guess we're now down to 249,998

    Cheers,

    Donna

    I know plenty of folks who go by their middle name. Does that count as an alias?

    it does if they only use it sometimes

    esp. if they have an occasional sig. and an official sig.

    As I dimly recall, the use of an alias is
    lawful, except when used to deceive.
    (In NZ, anyway)

    That's why you need to analyse your results you get from Veda or TINZ because it could come back with no record because it is a fake name with no history, not because the individual has good credit.
