29 June 2015

An unlicensed second-hand car seller in Albert Park has been convicted and fined $20,000, plus $800 in prosecution costs following investigations by the state’s consumer watchdog.

Mr Alecos Pericleous pleaded guilty in the Port Adelaide Magistrates court to breaching the Second-Hand Vehicle Dealers Act by operating a second-hand car dealer business without an appropriate license.
