Who operates "AussieSpeedingFines.com?"

The aussiespeedingfines.com website has the following terms and conditions:

1. You shall not use, or allow to be used, any information contained within "the website" in any way against the authors.
2. Even if known, you shall not disclose the names of the authors of "the website" to anyone at any time.
3. You fully understand that all the information that is contained within "the website" is provided to you on a Without Prejudice basis.
4. You further acknowledge that none of the information provided within "the website" is to be considered legal advice, it is simply provided for informational purposes only.

By continuing to read pages contained in/on "the website" you agree to the Terms and Conditions outlined above of your own free will and understand that any breach of those Terms and Conditions will render you liable to a penalty of AUD$1,000,000.00 payable immediately to the authors. Should you NOT agree to ANY of the Terms and Conditions above then you must close down "the website" within your browser and NOT read any further.

If the author were legally trained, he would know that it is illegal for a contract to impose a penalty which is greater than a fair and reasonable estimate of the actual loss and damage suffered as a result of the breach. So I'm not intimidated by the threat of a $1 million claim being made against me even if simply reading his web site has caused me to enter into a contract with him.

The owner has gone to considerable lengths to avoid being associated with his website. He does not disclose his identity as the owner on any part of his site. When making payment to him by credit card you are transacting with an anonymous entity. If paying by cheque, make it out to a service company. If you want a refund or you want to make a complaint, there is no-one to sue. There is no person, registered business name or Australian company that is prepared to take responsibility for the website. When you search whois for the domain owner's details, you get the following:

No meaningful information is published about the identity or contact details of the domain owner.Doesn't sound like someone who is proud of his work and prepared to stand by it. Perhaps the author is just a very humble man?! Here is what others say about this.

In the online promotion of the ebook, the author says this:

Please don't wait to order this e-book though. We have done everything in our power to hide our identity from the government, but they WILL eventually find a way around this and try to shut our site down.

Might be because he doesn't want his customers to lynch him when they discover they have lost their licence after being promised they will avoid fines for life.

But it is now time to acknowledge this legal genius. The aussiespeedingfines.com website is owned and operated by a man called Mike Palmer, who once operated out of his home at 388 Beach Road, Beaumaris Victoria. 

Mike Palmer is a motivational speaker (a.k.a. an over-priced spruiker). His online profile suggests he is a student and follower of Tony Robbins, the American motivational speaker who started out selling his own seminars and who utilises firewalking and hypnotism in personal power building seminars. Mike spent some time studying to be a hypnotist, which he probably found more useful than wasting any time studying law. He also operates tours around Melbourne (although I can't find any sign of his registration as a travel agent under the Travel Agents Act). It seems Mike's powers of persuasion are an integral part of his business. Mike was planning to run a speeding fine forum on 3 September 2007 through Bayside City Council's Bayside Business Network Seminar Series. A couple of weeks before it ran, the Council canned it because of concerns that his business is unethical.

Palmer's house in Beaumaris is up for auction.  On 1 June 2009 mortgagees took possession after a long battle in the Supreme Court, where Palmer used a few of his whacky legal theories to try to stave off bankruptcy. His flawed and hopeless arguments have been rejected by Associate Justices Evans and Daly, Justice Cavanough, Justice Kyrou and Justice Smith, and Appeal Justices Dobbs-Streeton and Beach in at least 6 applications, hearings and appeals. Apparently he is now seeking special leave to appeal to the High Court. He claims that he is not obliged to repay any of the $1.3 million lent to him and his company because the words "without prejudice" were written on the page where he signed the loan contract and guarantee! That garbage will sound familiar for those who have read his eBook.  He has been representing himself in court as well as trying to be the barrister and solicitor for his company.  You can read about it here and here. The bank auctioned his house on 25 July 2009 in an attempt to recover over $1.6 million owed by his company and which he has guaranteed.

For a good laugh take a read of this thread to the end.
