The Commissioner for Consumer Affairs is issuing a public warning statement to warn consumers not to deal with a business by the name of M&M Greenworks Tree Services and individuals associated with the business by the names of “Fui” and “Hay”.
Residents in the Adelaide Hills area have been door-knocked by these men offering tree lopping services . In particular , the individuals sought to have an elderly lady accompany one of the men to the bank to withdraw cash to pay for the services before the work was carried out and a price was agreed upon. The men have been described as driving a White Toyota Landcruiser utility, Victorian Registration YYU-356 and White lsuzu truck, Victorian Registration WXL-218.
The Commissioner is warning the public about the alleged conduct as the Commissioner:
- has reasonable grounds to suspect that it may constitute breaches of the Australian Consumer Law;
- is satisfied that one of more persons have suffered, or is likely to suffer detriment as a result of the alleged conduct; and
- is satisfied that it is in the public interest to issue a public warning notice.
If anyone has any concerns about their dealings with M&M Greenworks Tree Services or the named individuals they should contact Consumer and Business Services on 131 882.
