It's a real estate scam

NSW Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe has warned about a scam letter targeting real estate agents.

A letter, purporting to be from the ATO, asks agency owners to provide details about Australian properties they manage on behalf of non-residents.

The scammers seek to assume the identities of non-residents and sell their properties without the real owners' knowledge. Agents who receive a copy of the scam letter are advised to contact Fair Trading at

Joint purpose

CLIFF Lewis Printing and Jarvis Design & Print, two family-based businesses in Sutherland Shire, have joined forces to become the CLP Group.

The two printing companies employ around 30 staff.
