Jude Troy 2007
Occupation: Owner of retaildreams.com
When Valda Sheergold returned to Erinsborough, she brought with her plans for an online business, selling lingerie to the larger lady. She had already been in touch with website designer Jude Troy, who ran retaildreams.com, and got chatting to pregnant Carmella Cammeniti. Valda made Carmella see that she could make a lot of money, and save herself some bad backs, by putting her business online. Within days, Carmella was in touch with Jude, who told her that he would need $20,000 for the initial set-up, and they could expand by creating individual sites for every state in Australia.
With Valda and Carmella as customers, Jude also received business from Lou Carpenter who saw a money-making scheme in selling Russian goods online. But, as both Lou and Valda experienced problems with their websites, and found that they were unable to get through to Jude or use the company's helpline, Valda enlisted the help of computer whizz Zeke Kinski, who tracked down the retaildreams address from their business registry. Once there, Valda was stunned to find him packing up, and Jude explained that the bank had closed them down. When Valda threatened to sue, Jude told her that she was welcome to anything that was left at the end of it, and she proceeded to pay Lou and Carmella back the money, claiming that it had come from Jude when, in reality, she was saving face by paying them from her own savings.
