The hunt continues for Karl and Cassandra Dobson, the people behind failed business VIP Sheds, which left at least 67 Tasmanians out of pocket - to the tune of more than $400,000.
Director of Consumer Affairs and Fair Trading Dale Webster this morning told Tasmania Talks he has a private investigator trying to locate the pair.
"I want to send a clear message to the Dobsons... don't come to Tasmania and do this to our consumers," Mr Webster said.
"But secondly I want to send a message to anyone else that's thinking about doing this type of activity: don't do it, because we will come after you."
A Fairfax report last week put the total number affected by VIP's collapse at up to 240 individuals and 40 trade creditors, owed a total in excess of more than $2 million.
