Read the disturbing letters demanding Perth homeowners give up their homes and extra cars to avoid ‘unrest and violence’
A concerted campaign to scare landlords has spread across the country, with vague letters warning residents to give up their belongings to avoid “unrest and violence”.
Disturbing letters signed by “your concerned friends” have emerged in Perth’s western suburbs, accusing residents of being “too rich”.
Similar letters from the same “friends” first appeared mid-year in the upmarket Melbourne suburb of Toorak and the coastal town of Lorne, 141km southwest of the Victorian capital.
The letters mainly address the housing crisis and begin with: “Hello my friend, we are concerned about the damage you are causing to our society. »
The letter ends with an email address, “email@example.com,” which encourages people to contact us.
A letter from “your concerned friends” has been released in Perth’s western suburbs, warning property owners to give up their properties or face violence.
The median house price in Perth’s west (pictured) is $955,000, suggesting homeowners in the area are “too rich”, the letter says.
The double-sided letter begins bluntly: “You are too rich and that is hurting a lot of people. »

The other side asks a question: “Don’t you think you are too rich?” The house and neighborhood you live in suggest that you are! ‘
The median house price in Perth’s western suburbs is $955,000, according to the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia.
In Toorak the average buyout in the housing market is $5.8 million and in Lorne it is around $2 million.
This type of wealth can only be held by someone who “causes inequality,” according to the letter.
“You can solve this problem by giving away a substantial portion of your wealth,” he suggests.
“It’s not only the ethical thing to do; this will help steer our society towards harmony and away from chaos.
According to the letter, history has proven that inequality has bred resentment between the upper and lower classes, which inevitably “spills over.”
Without addressing growing resentment, violence will soon put everyone in danger, the letter continues.
“As responsible for inequalities, you have the means and the responsibility to remedy them.”
But by distributing any excess wealth, it reassures recipients that “you will still be able to live a comfortable life with much less than you currently have.”
Similar letters have already been sent to residents of Toorak and Lorne in Victoria.
Homeowners in Lorne (pictured), 141km southwest of Melbourne, where the median house price is $2 million, received the letter in June.
Suggesting how landlords can “keep us all safe,” the letter offers a simple three-step path to redistributing wealth.
“Step 1. Give away any investment properties you own to the people who are currently renting them,” he begins.
‘Step 2. Give away any vacation homes you own to long-term tenants.
“Step 3. If your household has more cars than licensed drivers, give the extra cars to people who don’t have them.
“That’s not all you need to do, but that’s where you should start.”
