Former LJ Hooker agent Judy Nguyen, charged with misappropriating more than $2 million of customers’ money, is working as an agent in Melbourne.

According to a report in Domain, an advertisement in a local suburban paper advertisement featured Judy Nguyen is an agent at OZ Capital Real Estate in Springvale, due to open next week.

Consumer Affairs Victoria charged her in January with 216 offences. 

Ms Nguyen was originally charged with 216 breaches of the Estate Agents Act. The Office of Public Prosecutions was granted approval to 113 charges, with the case returning to court 19 May for a committal mention.

According to the Domain report, a Consumer Affairs Victoria spokesman said the watchdog was aware of the advertisement regarding Ms Nguyen and “is assessing all options available under existing legislation”, with Oz Capital Real Estate officer Dixon Lim saying he was in discussion with Consumer Affairs Victoria and could not comment further.>

"Last month, Ms Nguyen and her husband Tri Duc (Jospeh) Ngo appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court for a committal mention following the collapse of six Melbourne LJ Hooker offices last April," Domain noted.

"Mr Ngo’s lawyer, Erol Cinar, told the court that Mr Ngo was the only one with access to the trust accounts and he was the one who committed the offending. Ms Nguyen would plead not guilty to all charges."
