    QLD seller sold Vic buyer a campervan with roadworthy, once transported to Victoria VicRoads notified that QLD roadworthy certs aren’t valid here. Vic roadworthy determined extensive rust that meant the vehicle was too dangerous to even be driven, and attempts to cover the rust so as not to be detected. Is it possible to pursue criminal charges?

    I wouldn’t think criminal charges are likely in this case but certainly civil, remedies under the ACL could well be possible though.
