Yes a referral would be great. I tried the TIO, with Telstra, but they said they can only ask for money, and as I wanted more than $2,000 (I think that was the amount)...they could not help me. I have not given up on many things.... I just keep trying. Thankyou for the ACCC reference. I will try there. Please recommend a lawyer. I have had Latro helping before...for a different matter, They demanded more than my $2,000 paid to continue, on this different matter, then when I paid an extra $300 or so, they said they would no longer represent me, because they felt they could not win. ie been ripped off by everyone...all stems to stalking issues by ex and the family...except the bank matter, that was just another awful blow, the same week my ex destroyed my business (telstra employee)...or Telstra will billing error...either way telstra a re responsible. And legal aid will not help. They would not help when I took my ex sister in law to court fror breaking vro for my protection, and constantly getting me sacked...Lawyer was Kevin Prince, I demanded he ask that she pay all costs, and the judge agreed. Kevin had never ever come across that in a VRO domestic violence case. Was so glad she had to pay, because I could repay the $2,000 to a dear friend, my only friend.
In the last six years, affter suffering abuse for over 30 years...I got brave and separated. Then I got threatened with being shot, found spent shotgun cartridges out the front of my house...police told my 10 year old son, who found the cartridge..""She needs to be locked up for my own good, ie mental institution..."...he spoke to my stalkers first? haha, that went to CCC, got denied, but that copper aint in Albany any more..
I been pulled over and breathalized constantly, because three/now four stalkers now report me to anyone and everyone.
I got pulled over once after a spat with my ex sister in law...what did the police say" We had a report you parked crookedly in Coles (carpark), we didn't see it, but we have to breathalize you...result, negative of course...I was grocery shopping)....... I r efuse to stay the victim here.
Well she got me bashed, because she knew about it, and telephoned my ex (my other son was listening to the telephone conversation)...that was timed, for before the police had even left. No-one knew I had been bashed, until hours later, except the bashers. That issue is with Police Complaints department..why? They believed what the basher said (one of four of them)..that as I lie on the hallway floor, and he stepped over me, he told them I had bit him on the leg? Such is the power of people and their slander, the police did not take a photograph of the bite...nothing...
After that, she got angrier...because she had to pay my lawyer and her lawyer for the second VRO thing...cost her around $7,000. so she got revenge. Got her best friend Noelene Drummond, to lie that my dog had bitten someone. The rangers stole my dog from my verandah, denied it, then had to admit it..Tortured my dog for 8 weeks...I had to send the RSOCA inspector to check, and then the dog had to go immediately to the vet.
The CEO, Albany City Council, demanded I sign a "gag"piece of paper, or they would destroy my dog. I still believed in justice then, stupid me. I complainted to the Ombudsman and the Minister for Local Government --- I got all the proof...all the letters, emails documents, vet rpprts, photgraphs...well, they came back got my gentle giant, and had her destroyed.
So my ex could not hurt me, but between him and his family, and the bank where all his very extended wealthy family bank......... they still try to destroy me.
I no longer believe in justice, because no-one in authority wants to listen. Even my lawyer Kevin Prince, met with the CEO Albany City Council..the CEO acting as a lawyer...famous Faileen James.....and he was told I did not bother to turn up...Trouble is, not only did I not get invited, Faileen James and Linda Hill at the City Council, purposely put blocks, so I would not find out where this meeting was...I was at City Council, they were with my lawyer...
