Post: Victorian man to stand trial on charges of obtaining financial advantage by deception

Mr Samuel Tessa of Elwood, Victoria, has been committed to stand trial on five counts of dishonestly obtaining a financial advantage by deception. This follows a contested committal hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court that concluded on 18 October 2018.

It is alleged that Mr Tessa dishonestly obtained money from individuals or businesses on the pretence that it would be used to pay insurance premiums when no insurance policy was in fact taken out.

The businesses targeted by Mr Tessa are located in Melbourne and provide automotive repair services.

Mr Tessa entered a plea of not guilty and was granted conditional bail.

The trial will be held in the County Court of Victoria and is listed for two weeks commencing on 25 November 2019.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is prosecuting the matter.
