Fair Trading
Scams, rip-offs and frauds are becoming more and more commonplace.
In Australia, state government Fair Trading agencies are becoming more and more impotent in tackling these matters, it appears some would rather put more effort into finding excuses not to tackle the matters, than actually tackling them, which in fact serves to assist the scammers by granting them impunity. Hence the introduction of

in the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia proceedings BRG167/2009
Court record since 11 March 09 HERE

Gary Owen Linkedin details | MORE ABOUT GARY OWEN @ ZOOM BLOOMS REVIEW
alleging hundreds of breaches of Australian Consumer Law
+
evidence of approx 4,976 (four thousand nine hundred and seventy six) false testimonials
ON 3 MAY 2012 THE COURT HAS ORDERED
that both Respondents file their defence and the Applicant file a repy to the defence.
------------
THE DEFENCE of Ready Flowers Pty Ltd - relay florist :
Apparently Ready Flowers does not know what a Relay Florist is or what the Ready Flowers Brand is, and seeks to deny that it is an Australian florist business since February 2009, despite substantial evidence that demonstrates that at all times it sought to portray itself as an Australian florist service, as can be seen in the REPLY.
THE DEFENCE of Gary Owen, IT Manager UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND :
Gary Owen denies the undeniable as set out at paragraph 14 in the amended Statement of Claim. The reason for his denial is that he apparently does not know what an Internet Business or a Relay Florist is and seeks to be provided with information of how his thousands of fabricated testimonials are in fact false. See how the falsities speak for themselves at paragraph 14 of the amended Statement of Claim (false testimonials via hyperlinks now removed). Apparently owning up to ones fraudulent activities is not part of the University of Queensland's staff, Ethical Conduct in the Workplace.
THE REPLY of applicant Gordon Craven :
pleads estoppel to rebut the ridiculous, cowardly and evasive defence of Ready Flowers.
