2015/16 Central Canterbury Farm Location Map book. 

The above Farm Location Map is a sham. 

Martin Mason has knowingly scammed the advertisers and reputable Companies by publishing the Central Canterbury Farm Location book knowing that the map pages don't align with the Owners index....the owners index published is from the 2013 Central Canterbury Farm Location Map book. 

Please withhold any payments to Carlton View Holdings Ltd. If you have paid him for this scam insist that you get reimbursed. His contact  details are: PO Box  33 281 Barrington, Christchurch. 


2016 Dunedin/Clutha Rural Location Map book. 

This has not been published by Arcadia Marketing Ltd. in spite of the  understanding that advertisers were going to receive  an updated version of Arcadia Marketing Ltd 2014 Dunedin/Clutha Farm Location Map book. 

Please find below an excerpt from an email Arcadia Marketing Ltd  received on the 10/05/2016. 

"Martin Mason approached us to advertise in the farm location map book. He produced a copy of the Dunedin-Clutha farm location map published by Arcadia Marketing Ltd in 2014 and advised that there was an updated version being prepared. 

He never indicated that he no longer worked for the company or that the book being produced was anything other than an update of Arcadia's 2014 map book. My concerns only arose when the new "Rural Location Map Book"  arrived. It was clearly not a farm location map book at all and lacked any reference to farm owners details on the maps. The only information the maps contain are rapid numbers, which are not indexed in the book. 

I only agreed to place an advert on the basis of being shown Arcadia's 2014 publication and told he was doing an update of that book. I do not intend to pay his account and I have contacted clients of mine who had also placed adverts to let them know my concerns. I believe you should consider contacting the Police given your publication is being used dishonestly and with the intent of deceiving Businesses including many of your previous Advertisers".

If current advertisers in the Dunedin/Clutha feel they had been deceived  as above, don't pay his account.
