Does ACC purchase high value information?

David Nicholas made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

The request was successful.

From: David Nicholas

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

It has been stated that there are some people in society provide ACC with information about other citizens?

Does ACC pay for information? If so, how much has been paid out?

Is it true that cars have been provided to people who have provided high value information to ACC?
Yours faithfully,

David Nicholas

Dear Miroslava Mijic,

Are you seriously stating that ACC has never paid for any information at all?

Do the Private Investigators that you employ not pay people for information?

Do you not fast track peoples ACC claims or accept borderline ACC claims in exchange for information about possible fraud or threats to ACC Staff or Property?

Have you not provided higher specification vehicles for people that help you and dob innocent people in by lying about what they know?

Perhaps I need to clearly specify what I meant by payment?

Yours sincerely,

David Nicholas

Seems to me that Mr Nicholl's has an axe to grind.

This sort of rubbish shouldn't be allowed
