Mystery surrounded the identity of the Illawarra's No Land Tax candidates, now the party's state election campaign has raised further questions.
A Berkeley couple who signed up to distribute how-to-vote cards are concerned they won't be paid as promised, after being told it was a scam.
Sarah Marsala, 28, and her husband Dimitrie applied via the electionwork.com.au website after receiving a flyer in the mail, which featured the NSW Coat of Arms, spruiking the election day money-earner.
The website promised workers $30 an hour, $330 for a day's work, along with a $200 bonus if the candidate contesting their electorate got 10 per cent of the vote.
The bonus jumped to $500 if the candidate garnered 20 per cent of the vote and the promise was: "the more flyers you hand out - the more you'll get paid".
The Marsalas are in the process of concreting their driveway and wanted to use the extra money to cover the cost.
The couple arranged for their two daughters to be minded on Saturday and said they only realised they would be promoting the No Land Tax (NLT) party when flyers and yellow vests arrived on Friday.
The application web page they used had a one-line authorisation by NLT secretary and lead candidate in the upper house Peter Jones in its footer.
Two phone numbers were included with the flyer delivery, however Mrs Marsala had no need to call because she had received all the material and another pamphleteer was at Berkeley West Public School when she arrived on Saturday.
"We started working and it wasn't until one of the voters came up to us ... telling us she'd heard on the radio it was a scam and we weren't going to get paid," Mrs Marsala said.
"I wasn't going to go off her word, so I decided to ring those numbers, but they both didn't work," she said. "That's when I started to get a bit worried."
As a result, the couple chose not to stay all day.
Mrs Marsala received an email from Mr Jones on Tuesday, which said the party had about 3000 payments to process.
The email said the party couldn't take confidential financial information - such as tax file numbers and bank details - via email and would set up a secure website.
The first payment is expected to be made on April 7, with a promise to complete all payments by April 30.
In the email, seen by the Mercury, Mr Jones said "people who are polite and patient" would be paid first.
"We will pay people who are rude or obnoxious LAST. We have feelings too," the email said.
"If you threaten, harass or defame us YOU WILL NOT BE PAID - EVER. We'd just love to meet you in court."
Mr Jones blamed an "unlawful campaign of harassment and intimidation" for the delays.
When the Mercury contacted Mr Jones the call went to a recorded message saying an email "setting out arrangements for your pay" would be sent.
