In my opinion I believe all 4 casting calls were legitimate. The initial 3 were listed for about 2 days. That was enough time for any interested parties to glean the details. Once the information was printed in the newspapers and featured internationally they probably saw no reason to retain them on trademe.
Trademe is like NZ's equivalent of Ebay, its NZ'ers most visited website, not just for auctions, but jobs, in addition to being an online community. They can acheive far more exposure on Trademe than if they had an advert printed in any singular city newspaper.
I believe they acheived the desired exposure and asked trademe to remove those three out of four listings. They probably only wanted to alert Matamata/Hamilton and Waikato locals.
In all likelihood they are probably still lacking in their short and tall files which is why the fourth listing for Auckland still remains.
Either way I will be proved right or wrong on the 23rd and 24th when the Matamata/Hamilton and Waikato auditions are scheduled to take place.
