I lost my opal...

I lost my opal card I've used in Sydney. The last time I used it, it had a negative balance after I swiped it at the airport exit gate. It has been unregistered as far as I remember.Is there a possibility that the law would catch up to me for that? Also, will there be legal consequences as soon as I leave Australia (for further information: I am on a working holiday in Australia?).

Good Evening

You have nothing to worry about.

It is not a criminal offence.

If you have not registered the card they have no knowledge of who you are.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Herllo, We are in Western Australia, I am not sure. I have
On Friday 16th December, we (my 2 children and I) were in a taxi at Perth Domestic Airport. Once we were in the taxi the taxi driver decided he couldn't fit all of our baggage into the taxi and asked us to get out and get into another larger taxi. My daughter got out and stood on the pavement. My son (who is 8) went to get out of the taxi but when he opened the door, another taxi drove past and swiped the door. Both taxis were damaged. My son was very shaken and upset. The taxi we were riding in (I suspect) was parked away from the curb (I have asked for cctv footage to clarify this) and the taxi passing was obviously going quite fast and close to the original taxi. I am just wondering legal liability, not that I am admitting fault considering the person who opened the door was 8.… read more
