Dispute Resolution

Are you involved in a dispute that looks like it may end in court?

My office often receives enquiries about a variety of scams that are targeting various sectors of the community via emails, letters and phone calls

I recommended that anyone who has concerns about a possible scam visits the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s scamwatch website Scamwatch

I would like to remind everyone that if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.  If you have not purchased a lotto ticket in Spain, you have not won a prize.  If someone asks for your bank account details it is more than likely to empty the account, not to put money into it. And, if someone really wants to talk to you, they will call you back.
