Consumer and Business Services prosecutes dodgy car dealer

5 February 2015

A dodgy car dealer in Adelaide’s southern suburbs has been convicted and fined $30,000 following a recent investigation by South Australia’s consumer watchdog Consumer and Business Services (CBS).

Gary Ronald Hancock pleaded guilty to five breaches of the Second-Hand Vehicle Dealers Act 1995 - one count of operating a second-hand car dealer business while unlicensed and four counts of making materially false or misleading statements.
