Consumer Protection has issued advice for customers of Aussie Sheds Albany affected by the bankruptcy of its sole proprietor Armand Javellana.
The business closed this week after taking payments from consumers for the construction of sheds but has failed to supply the materials or complete the work. So far 38 consumers have reported paying a total of almost $500,000 for work yet to be commenced or completed.
A public warning was issued on 10 August 2020:
Consumer complaints mount against Albany shed seller – warning issued (Aussie Sheds Albany / Armand Javellana)
Affected consumers are advised to fill out and sign a Proof of Debt form that can be downloaded from the Australian Financial Security Agency (AFSA) website. The form should then be lodged with Mr David Hurt and Mr Jimmy Trpcevski of WA Insolvency Solutions who are the appointed bankruptcy trustees.
The lodgement details are:
