Audiobuy resurfaces...

 

July 2018: After a year in hiding, Mr. Paul Williams (born in Jamaica, holding a New Zealand passport) and his grey importing web site audiobuy.com.au has resurfaced again. Sadly we haven't seen the last of this dodgy character. 

You can see here his audiobuy Australian trademark has expired.

Despite that he's back, forwarding the audiobuy.com.au web address to audiobuy.online

How he keeps this .com.au address is a mystery to us given he does not meet the criteria of ownership. He is not an Australian resident and no longer holds a legitimate trademark.
