Inter-agency cooperation leads to traveling conmen detention

24 December 2015

Three suspected travelling conmen have been detained and left Australia as a result of cooperative efforts between South Australia’s consumer watchdog – Consumer and Business Services (CBS), the Australian Border Force (ABF) and interstate consumer affairs authorities.

Commissioner for Consumer Affairs, Dini Soulio, said intelligence from CBS investigators about an itinerant trader under investigation led to Border Force conducting a raid at Glenelg last week.
