Hi, I’m John, solicitor, and reviewing your post, and may need to ask a few questions a long the way to assist you.

Concerning your important comments, what is the outcome you would like to see result.

Customer

What do you need to do is two things one you've got to notify the police someone is impersonating you, the second one if you need to notify your insurance company straight away, thirdly you need to put notifications on all your social media that someone has stolen your ID, and then finally you need to go to the Maritime roads authority and get a new license immediately.

In the meantime hopefully the police can catch this particular individual through cameras, and therefore be prosecuted for all those penalties.

You need to do all these things multiple Together in order to seek a positive result

Sorry I mean I am in Victoria all the time but he stole my driving licence details and nominated me in NSW and my licence is issused by Vicroads. So, I own NSW government 2-3k because of those fines. And I have just received a letter from Vicroads that said I've accumulated 5 or more demerit points and reached the demerit points limit. I've gone to the police already and they said they can't do anything because he did it in NSW and suggest me to find legal aid to see what can I do

your matter is civil and you can take it into the tribunal to argue your case

Customer
is there anything that i need to do to the person who nominated me?

John Melis, Expert

Yes, you can raise proceedings against them in the District Court straight away for the fraudulent conduct. With these proceedings will be suing for compensation which could be significant based on the circumstance

Customer
what should i do if i raise proceedings against them in the District Court? do i need to get a lawyer?

John Melis, Expert

You can run your own case and sue them for the fraudulent conduct by nominating you when you didn't actually drive that vehicle. Or alternatively you can engage a local lawyer to help you with that case as well

Customer
just want to double check, u mean i can sue them in VIC District Court for the fraudulent conduct by nominating you when you didn't actually drive that vehicle in NSW?

You suit the individual in the New South Wales district court. As you are based in New South Wales that's where you saw him where you live.

Customer
I based in VIC even now. I am not sure where is he now. He was my friend but I havnt seen him ages. He prob moved to NSW. And I am in VIC all the time
Customer
he claimed he is in Melbourne

John Melis, Expert

As you are based in Victoria now then you bring the proceedings in the Magistrate's Court of Victoria

Customer
I can still sue him even he stole my licence details and nominated me in NSW, is that what you mean?
img

John Melis, Expert

Yes you can sue them for conversation

Customer
