Court actions

Consumer Affairs Victoria has started tribunal proceedings against Camberwell business Five Star Car Sales (Five Star - ACN: 139 632 107), alleging it breached a number of its obligations under Victorian motor car trader laws.

Our allegations include that Five Star’s business was being carried on in a dishonest or unfair manner and that the director of the licensed company, Mr Bo Li, 31, of Camberwell, is not a fit and proper person to be a director of a licensee.

We also allege that the licensee (that is, the company):

  • employed someone in a customer service capacity who was disqualified from doing so
  • did not include the letters ‘LMCT’ followed by the motor car trader’s licence number, in car advertisements
  • offered cars for sale that did not have the required form attached to them
  • showed our inspectors a false and misleading document. 

We allege that the breaches occurred from January 2014 to March 2018.

Five Star came to our attention during a site inspection and following consumer complaints.

Five Star faces orders including a penalty, or having its licence cancelled, suspended or restricted.

The matter will be heard at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
