Fair Trading is seeking a conman who was issued with a contractor’s licence at Tweed Heads in April after it was revealed he has operated under a number of assumed names.

At the time of the licence being issued, he was also wanted for a number of offences committed in Victoria.

Fair Trading investigations revealed that at the time Mr Conner applied for the contractor licence, he was known by five names or aliases in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania: Christopher Mark Conner, George Fayle, Steven Marchetti, Christopher Connor and Michael-John Chand.

Although he was asked to return his licence, Conner failed to do so. It was cancelled on 24 May and he was convicted in absentia on 29 June and ordered to pay $24,443 by Parramatta Local Court.

In August he was issued with a court attendance notice at Sydney Airport on return from a holiday in the US.

Conner is also wanted for a string of offences in Victoria, including: Obtain Property by Deception (x 7); Attempt to Commit Indictable Offence (Dishonestly Obtain Property); Make False Document (x 3); Use False Document; Theft From Motor Vehicle; Unlicensed Driving; and Use Unregistered Motor Vehicle.
