A North Fitzroy woman has been fined more than $23,000, without a conviction, after pleading guilty to unlicensed motor car trading, in breach of the Motor Car Traders Act 1986.
We took action against Gelzar Ali Aziz, 49, after our investigations revealed she had bought six cars at an auction house, and sold 69 vehicles between March 2016 and March 2017.
Ms Aziz pleaded guilty at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court to two charges of unlicensed motor car trading.
If a person deals in four or more cars per year in Victoria, they generally need a motor car traders licence issued by the Business Licensing Authority.
The Director of Public Prosecutions has lodged an appeal against the decision, on the ground that the sentence is inadequate.
