A PRO English footballer and a talent manager for a controversial naked cleaning company have been unwittingly embroiled in the latest scheme of serial building company shonk Matthew Geoffrey Rixon.
Rixon, 34, who also goes by the name Matthew Douglas, has numerous convictions in New South Wales and Queensland over his dodgy operations, which also saw him extradited to Sydney and handed an 18-month jail sentence last year.
Rixon is banned from the building industry in NSW and unlicensed in Queensland, but one of his companies, CDA Fencing, is still advertised online as a Robina-based business.
Authorities in two states, as well as corporate regulator ASIC, are investigating Rixon and his activities, and the NSW Office of Fair Trading has issued a public warning about him and CDA Fencing.
