A Glenroy woman has been fined $10,000 after pleading guilty to unlicensed motor car trading, in breach of the Motor Car Traders Act 1986.
We took action against Marjan Hayvari, 27, after our investigations revealed that she bought cars at a vehicle auction house and on-sold 54 of them between March 2016 and April 2017.
Ms Hayvari pleaded guilty at the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court to one charge 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.
