Le­gal ac­tion against Bon Levi in 2010, for­bids the con­victed fraud­ster of advertising his “Bikini Girl Mas­sage” busi­ness with­out pre-ap­proval of the Com­mis­sioner for Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion.

Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion are now try­ing to raise aware­ness in the com­mu­nity that those re­stric­tions, which were made per­ma­nent by the Supreme Court, still ap­ply to his busi­ness in Nar­ro­gin on Eger­ton Street. Com­mis­sioner for Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion David Hill­yard urges any­one who be­lieves Mr Levi has breached the Supreme Court or­der or has en­gaged in any con­duct in breach of the Aus­tralian Con­sumer Law to come for­ward.

“We would like the com­mu­nity to be aware that there is a court or­der in force that places some re­quire­ments on Mr Levi’s busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties,” Mr Hill­yard said.

“Should any al­le­ga­tions of mis­lead­ing con­sumers or em­ploy­ment ap­pli­cants be sup­ported with ev­i­dence, we will in­ves­ti­gate with the view of tak­ing fur­ther le­gal ac­tion.” The le­gal ac­tion by Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion in 2010 was prompted by con­cerns that the job ads be­ing posted at that time were mis­lead­ing to po­ten­tial ap­pli­cants be­cause they made claims re­gard­ing train­ing that would be pro­vided and qual­i­fi­ca­tions that would be achieved through their em­ploy­ment with the busi­ness.

The ads omit­ted in­for­ma­tion that em­ploy­ees would ef­fec­tively be sub­con­trac­tors who had to rent fa­cil­i­ties from the op­er­a­tors.

The or­der fur­ther re­quires Mr Levi to make it clear to ap­pli­cants what stan­dard of dress would be re­quired while car­ry­ing out their du­ties.

We would like the com­mu­nity to be aware that there is a court or­der in force.
