Repair conman still prowling

Christopher Brocklebank, believed to be living in Woodvale, is due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court in May on six allegations he took money for work he never completed while operating as Perth Evaporative Air and Gas Services.

He faces a seventh charge for allegedly misleading a customer as to the quality of his service.

The hearing was meant to have taken place in July last year but Mr Brocklebank did not attend court.

Last year, he was fined $2000 for offences under the Home Building Contracts Act after being charged by the Building Commission.

In 2012, he was prosecuted by EnergySafety and fined $700 for attempting gas-fitting work without a permit.

Consumer Protection Commissioner Anne Driscoll said the agency was still receiving complaints about Mr Brocklebank.

�Consumer Protection believes Mr Brocklebank has received payments for work as recently as February this year,� Ms Driscoll said.

�I urge consumers not to deal with Mr Brocklebank or his business as he has an established pattern of poor business behaviour which includes failing to supply goods and services and not addressing the concerns of his customers.�
