Adding to my previous post. During the early 1990s', Dovansa PTY LTD ( Investigated by ICAC and now deregistered ) which Alf Merlino directed owned All Night security and Alfs Investigations ( both businesses now deregistered ) All Night Security carried out static and alarm respond services for the education department and other clients. These alarms would sometimes be set off by the guards themselves so All Night Security would receive the radio call to attend, therefore, All Night Security would receive payment for the call out to attend. All Night Security were also involved in a well known scam back then. A scam where a guard would attend a property they patrolled and smash the shop front glass. Then then guard would call it in to radio, then call the glass company, ( several glass companies were involved ) and receive $100 spotters fee from the glass company. A good little earn back then for years 1989-91 when all this was happening.
Alf Merlino has broken every rule under the Security Protection Act. he is none other than a wanna be Al Capone who has watched far too many gangster movies and a very dangerous man with a gun, anyone will tell you that. As dangerous as the scumbag he once employed who is still serving time for an armed robbery in which he planned as a
security guard in which a mother was shot dead at point blank range with a high powered pistol in front of here then 17 year old son. The other pig involved escaped to Greece and to date is still wanted for being the mastermind behind this heinous crime. I won't mention names but people in the security industry back in 1994 when this crime occurred.
Alf Merlino also owns a limo business. I am wandering how many people he employs or once employed  were being ripped off.
Alf Merlino is nothing more than a crooked, corrupt and dishonest human being and nobody should have any dealings
whether personal or business with this man, he is dangerous.

This is the same person, Alf Merlino you are all talking about and yes... extremely corrupt and dishonest 30 years ago and 30 years later, nothing...absolutely nothing has changed. He has has scammed nearly, if not, everyone he has employed and has even sent a few bankrupt. He was once called All Night Security and Alf investigations. A failed Private Investigator who could not track down a herd of elephants in a snow field and was Investigated by The Independent Commission against Corruption in 1991-92. He is nothing more than dishonest, always has been and always will be. Let me tell you that he was not and probably still is not at all liked by NSW Police. Do not deal with him, Do not work for him, just have nothing to do with him.
