He phoned a clinic in Lyttleton in June 2011 under the name Barry McLeod to book a full back & thigh wax. He had been into our premises and been abusive in August 2010.
After a brief stint in Tauranga Gareth McWilliams reared his ugly head in Christchurch again (Oct 2009).

Most of the names are not very imaginative and sometimes he doesn’t know them himself.
He has a history of booking massages (often under an assumed name) and not paying for them. Also booking massages and not turning up for them. I am also aware of a case of him behaving inappropriately toward a female. He has used different names in the past, presently has no contact phone number.
He sometimes claims that ACC will pay for it and has a record of not showing up for second appointments (if he shows for the first at all!).
He seems to seek out females rather than males, preferably some who work by themselves. The police has been alerted in a couple of cases where he made a booking, he did not turn up in the end.
DON’T LET HIM MESS YOU AROUND !!!!
