QBCC warns caution in dealings with Belal Dassouki and the Plumbing Detectives

The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) Commissioner has warned the Queensland public to be cautious in any dealings with Belal Dassouki; Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd in Queensland.

After reports on the Ray Hadley morning radio program, the QBCC became in possession of fridge magnets that have been distributed in areas including Hamilton, Aspley, Albany Creek, Bracken Ridge, Murrumba Downs, Chermside, Redcliffe, Kippa Ring, and Ferny Hills. 

Neither Belal Dassouki nor Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd hold a QBCC licence and therefore are not permitted to carry out, or enter into contracts to carry out, building work, including plumbing, in Queensland, the QBCC advised today.

The magnet lists licence number 227376c; a New South Wales licence number belonging to Belal Dassouki, registered Director of associated entity, Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd.

The advertising material promotes that plumbing work may be carried out by Belal Dassouki or Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd.  

The QBCC warns all persons in Queensland dealing with Belal Dassouki or Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd to "exercise extreme caution."

The QBCC urges consumers who have contracted with or had any dealings with Belal Dassouki or Plumbing Detectives PtyLtd to contact the QBCC on 139 333.

The commission advised to always check the firm was licensed or held the correct licence to do the work.

The QBCC commissioner Brett Bassett told 4BC that the press announcement was the first step in a regulatory review of the business operations of the plumbing outfit.
