Wonder how they were caught though.

Until now all cases that I have heard about immigration offences being caught were actually indirect.

For example a foreign worker was caught for molesting someone in a mall and then the police found that he was actually working parttime for a company while holding WP for another company.

Similarly, a Viet girl fell from her balcony and then the police found that she was overstaying her SVP.

That's what they mean by 'opening a can of worms'.

Isn't it a guilty pleasure almost everywhere? Recall the communists who told on their neighbors, their parents, their friends? Hotlines in Canada to report on drivers who litter the roadside? Facebook, blogs, and so on to tattle and tell and rumour. Nothing new here. :shock:

Gen X Aussies (even some Boomers) are the biggest dobbers out there. Ringing the ATO / Centrelink / APF for anything. The code of 'don't dob people in' is long gone.
