Janine Hendry was completely unaware her name was being used or that a judge had ordered she pay thousands.

An Optus hack victim is fighting almost $5,000 worth of fines for offences she did not commit after cruel fraudsters stole her identity to set up a fake Go Get account in her name.

High-profile Australian justice campaigner Janine Hendry was among millions of Australians who had their personal details stolen in the 2022 hack, but had no idea the consequences would be haunting her years later. The Melbourne woman told Yahoo Finance her driver’s licence number was used to hire three different cars, which clocked up thousands of dollars worth of parking and speeding tickets in her name.

One $257 fine – including a demerit point – was for doing 49km/h in a 40 zone in Exhibition St, in Melbourne’s CBD.

“I’m sure it’s not the worst thing that’s happened, but it’s really distressing,” Hendry said. “It’s annoying, frustrating and upsetting.”

To make matters worse, Hendry, who founded the March4Justice, was oblivious to the tickets until months later as she’d moved house and hadn’t seen the mail, with one Fines Victoria bill for $2726 dealt with – in her absence – by a magistrate who ordered her to pay up.
