Don't Trust Ted Sent

Ted Sent

This is the man you don't want to trust !

This is the man you don't want to trust !

Ted Sent, what can I say about Ted Sent. He is described to be a "Dirty Rotten Scoundrel" or "The worst crook in Australia". Anyone who has had dealings with this man probably suffered bankruptcy or worse. I hate this man, I really, really hate this man. Yet, he still continues to destroy people's lives. Surprisingly, the Victorian court system knows about Ted Sent and how corrupt he is, but do you think they do anything about it? NO !! How can we rely on the justice system, if corruption is within our courts? We need to question how long can Ted Sent "pay off" Lawyers and Judges before he is exposed? Corruption is breeding rapidly, and we need people power to expose this.
Ted Sent will do anything from going to court to face his crimes. I know as I have had 10 years of hell from a man who ruined a small family business, specialising in building Aged Care homes. This family built for Ted Sent (then CEO of Primelife) who trusted this man. Ted Sent refrained from paying for building works, and accused them of owing money then placed them under receivership by fraud and ruined their business. To make matters worse, he provided a Lawyer for the family business which is a CONFLICT of interest. Mark Darer was appointed which caused the problems. This then leads to the company being under receivership.
Ted Sent appointed a Receiver, Lowe Lippmann (Gidgeon Rathner) who took away their assets, years of hard work, infiltrated their private mail and even took their Superannuation Fund , isn't that illegal? This ordeal has contributed to extreme stress and illness among the family. The Directors' family of this family business, were evicted from their homes together with their small children who were traumatised from this event. Yet the Board members from Primelife know about this situation and refused to compensate for all the wrong doings of this man, Ted Sent.
Ron Walker and Robert de Crespyni knew of this situation when they ousted Ted Sent from Primelife and still wouldn't sort out this mess. Babcock and Brown took over Primelife and still would not sort out this problem. Now LendLease has taken over Primelife and they have inherited many problems left by, yes you guess it, Ted Sent.....
He still manages to continue business as usual. He has a legal team headed by Leonard Warren (Russell Kennedy Legal Group), who uses intimidation to resolve issues for Ted Sent. He has the help of a friend "Mick Gatto" who he relies on, to make sure no one steps in his way. It was alleged that Ted resorted to Mick Gatto's help to "Threaten" members of the small family business that built aged care homes for Ted, so they wouldn't pursue the matter by taking him to court. But that's another story.......
Ted Sent has assumed the name "Teflon Ted" because nothing sticks to him as his "puppets" do his dirty work and pay a hefty price.
This story is true and l can't believe the injustice of the court system for allowing this to happen, thanks to Ted Sent who orchestrated a merry go round of court appeals.
Please don't deal with this man TED SENT. He is a criminal, fraudulent and a dirty rotten scoundrel.
UPDATE: Since writing about Ted Sent, I have been inundated with victims who have been affected in so many ways. Apparently, he has acquired a company Premier Paving and employees don't like him. How can he still carry on with business even though he has left a trail of victims?

Ted placed a gag order years ago, however it's a struggle to get other people to provide evidence against him. We need more people to provide evidence to expose him. Please help if you can.

loufrank on January 14, 2015:

why do you have a "gag Order" shyonegh??

shyonegb (author) from Australia on January 13, 2015:

Get evidence against him as soon as possible, and expose him PLEASE!!

Abhey on January 13, 2015:

Thanks to your page, I have left the job at premier pavers and advised others working there to be careful and decide there future accordingly.

I know that he is also doing some sort of real estate on the side as he mentioned to me that he had sold a house in Ballarat and was conning me to get into house from his firm too.

He must be behind jail and getting ass raped by inmates

shyonegb (author) from Australia on December 29, 2014:

So sorry to hear that you are dealing with "Teflon Ted". My advice: get evidence against him, go to the news (we can't - have gag order) secretly round up people who are employed with you and expose him....

I don't know the current news, only know that the Taxation Dept. taking him to court. Please be careful he has "friends" that you don't want to deal with.

Abhey on December 29, 2014:

Ted sent is a fraud and disgusting rotten piece of flesh which stinks...What is the latest news about him..I am currently employed at premier pavers. Need help !!

loufrank on December 09, 2014:

Nothing, he got me 8 years ago for a fair bit of money, I am just another victim in a very long line,

shyonegb (author) from Australia on December 01, 2014:

I haven't heard anything lately, but it doesn't surprise me if he has appealed. What have you heard?

loufrank on November 30, 2014:

What is the latest with this man and the Tax dept?

Andrew Myers on January 21, 2012:

I have been wondering what Ted, Grace and Sandi were up to these days. Premier Paving huh!!!! When i looked up the website, i noticed Grace and Sandi's car's in the picture, silly them.

So much to say about Ted, I too have been the victim of his ways. In fact he still owes me and i'm sure a hell of a lot of his other previous employers a lot of money! But yet he can continue to venture into a new business without paying any of the money he owes! There was a time when i really admired Ted, i gave him the benefit of the doubt and got used and abused. What a horrible horrible horrible old man. I truly hope god has mercy on his soul. I sometimes wonder how he sleeps at night, knowing he has ruined so many people lives. But in his eyes as long as he is doing okay he see's no need to worry about others. Ted and Grace call themselves christians (although Ted is Jewish) but in all honestly, the way they treat people isn't the way of the lord.

Ted cry's poor, why dont you try dipping into your super fund Ted, or the many many different business entities you have that he has hiden away. I know a lot about a lot. Or perhaps he could dip into some of the houses he owns in Grace's name, or Andrea's name, the possibilites are endless. Such a greedy man.

Ted Sent really is one of a kind, in more ways then one. He wouldn't survive one day in Jail, but that's where he belongs, he's a conman, who wheels and deals with people's livelihood - i hope his judgement day serves him well!!!!

shyonegb (author) from Australia on September 28, 2011:

This coward WILL get what he deserves and I can't wait. Too many people got hurt by him and he still operates his business. Everything will catch up with him.

Peter on September 28, 2011:

Such a shame as this man now hides behind his wife's title as so called director yet nothing more than a coward. I worked with Ted & grace for some time, however, Ted is a coward. Cannot take hold of a situation, employs incompetent Jehovah's who have no real world experience or common sense causing business collapse with 12 months & deserves a complete ass raping in jail. Bullshit only gets you so far....... Sadly, premier paver in cheltenham is & will to continue to nosedive thanks to me. They should've thought about their situation first. Ted can be a good man, when it suits. Unfortunately, I think Ted has too big an ego himself let alone him give his philosophical bull rap to everyone else. Just because your of age, does not mean we all trust & believe in. Watch this space or the age. They write much bigger columns. Till the day & the day is near!

Dr David Howard on March 04, 2010:

I did a deal with Ted Sent Sept '77 or so I thought: In any event Ted put it down to a misunderstanding between our respective attorneys! So timing did not allow a deal to be closed, in any event we both had to leave Melbourne for critical convention held each year at the Conrad Hilton Chicago, USA. I arrived first and was surprised to find I could not get my product out of customs without Ted's signature! Finally Ted came into my hotel room and pulls out a thick agreement drawn by his attorney (absent my attorney of course!) saying it had "just thrown together". Ted explained, clearly jet lagged he fastidiously read it aloud to me claiming it was just a "temporary agreement" and we will drawn up a proper one when we return to Melbourne. So I signed it thinking it strange the patents he wanted me to sign over to him were in fact assigned to my Wife's, however Ted insisted it had to be signed OTHERWISE he could not release my product in bond as US customs which would therefore miss its crucial release at the annual convention. The product was THE major hit and was swept up to be exhibited in my absence (I had to get back home to Melbourne)later by being the key new product at following Consumer Electronics Show (C.E.S.)in Vegas, etc. Ted returned to Australia ahead of me as I set up manufacturing deals in California, product orders were flooding in to Brent's. First thing back in Melbourne I went to Brents on Warrigal Road putting to Ted we'd better close the agreement. Ted said WE HAD! I replied in Chicago you'd said it was only a "temporary agreement". He smiled and I saw him RAW: Finally he YELLED: If there was anything wrong with it he would fire his solicitor, all hell broke loose, finally I hung up the telephone on him, and quit.

From social meeting at picnics, pool etc with our wives and children my wife warned me on telephone, Ted having just hosted the wives and kids when I was already in Chicago that she did not trust him! He is a brilliant salesman: At convention in Chicago, Ted worked the booth and crowds so superbly, one key being that unlike myself Ted is multi-lingual, he worked the crowds so wonderfully. Such skills I saw, such a pity such an individual is a thief with no scruples whatsoever. Boy oh boy between the two of us and my product we certainly painted the town (or rather USA!) pity it all ended for what I thought could be a mistake was his planned theft of product and patents. I did notice how he oiled the system in Australia in his favour by gifting Jaguars and expensive cars to core folk. He had a lovely wife (Italian) and kids I have to wonder how they all now 40 years later.

My wife and I now live in Southern California, with grandchildren living nearby

Thanks andromida for understanding. Too bad our justice system doesn't help small businesses only giant corporations.

syras mamun on December 01, 2009:

I think every society and country has its own form of Ted Sent.Though most of us feel proud of being under the democratic govt./society. In fact nobody is free; I have observed it in almost everywhere. When will we get the real taste of democracy?thanks for sharing this wonderful hub.

shyonegb (author) from Australia on October 25, 2009:

Thank you fastfreta. We will still continue life and make the most of what we have.

Alfreta Sailor from Southern California on October 25, 2009:

I don't know about this man, but I'm sure we have the sort here in the U.S. I hope you and the family that you spoke of will get justice soon.
