Trevor Devlin 2007
Trevor Devlin Richie Akers
Occupation: Used Car Salesman
When Valda Sheergold found herself struggling financially, after her lingerie website went down the pan, she found herself unable to tell anyone the truth, even paying back Carmella Cammeniti and Lou Carpenter from her own pocket, lying that it was a refund, when the website company she'd recommended failed them too. When supplier Graham Botham then warned Valda that her latest cheque had bounced and he would be taking legal action, she decided that she needed some money quickly, and sold her car, for far less than she'd paid for it, to dealer Trevor Devlin. Unfortunately, when Toadie, the fiance of Valda's granddaughter Steph saw someone else driving the car, Valda lied that it must have been stolen, and Toadie and Steph forced her to report it to the police. As Valda got deeper into the lie, Toadie spotted Trevor with the car in Lassiter's car park and promptly dragged him into the bar, telling Steph to call the police as he'd found the thief. Valda was forced to come clean about everything before it went any further, and Toadie and Steph were sympathetic, even managing to call their mate, cop Adam Rhodes, and convince him to tear up Valda's insurance claim before it was processed.
• Richie Akers previously appeared in 1991 as Ernie Grace, and twice in 1993, as a builder named Rob and as Les Priest
