Miss Earth Australia passing off on National Breast Cancer Foundation

Following a passing off complaint, the organisers for Miss Earth Australia have been told to immediately remove all references to National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), including the NBCF logo, from websites and Facebook and any other communications associated with Miss Earth Australia, V Health Plus - Sydney City Medical Centre (located at 40 Park Street Sydney) and V Plus Foundation.

The organisers claim the Miss Earth Australia Organisation is a "designated not-for-profit entity" however there is no listing with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

President of Miss Earth Australia, Roselyn Singh PhD, also claims V Plus Foundation and VHealth Plus are not-for-profit organisations. None of these organisations are registered with ACNC.

Singh is no stranger to the frauds of passing off. Singh has claimed to be a doctor holding a PhD, MBA, BComs (hons), MBBS Forensic Pathology and has passed herself off as owning a number of well established medical centres in Sydney's CBD. Singh holds no tertiary qualifications, never owned the centres she claimed to own and has been reported to ASIC and Fair Trading for passing off, misleading and deceptive conduct and Police for identity theft and false accusations causing an investigation.

A company owned by Singh, UTSG Consortium Pty Limited trading as Sydney City Medical, was wound up by ASIC earlier this year owing millions to creditors, employees and victims of her various scams. Singh was reported by liquidators, Cor Cordis, to ASIC for committing an illegal phoenix.

Last years winner of the Miss Earth Australia Pageant 'Renera Thompson' and various suppliers are still owed thousands from the 2013 event. No one knows what happened to the funds raised by contestants and volunteers for the event.
