Another cold-call investment fraudster charged - 2 September 2016

A 69-year-old Elanora man has become the fifteenth (15th) person charged with criminal offences resulting from the joint Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) and Queensland Police Service (QPS) investigation known as Operation Lima Violin II which is focused on cold-call investment fraud and money laundering offences.

The man will face money laundering and fraud offences relating to his alleged involvement with companies including UK Home Base Business, Lay Trading Solutions, E-Wealth, E-Trading and Golden Cove.

He was located today by the CCC and served with a Notice to Appear in court to face one charge of fraud contrary to section 408C(1)(d) of the Queensland Criminal Code 1899 and one charge of money laundering contrary to section 250(1)(a) of the Criminal Proceeds Confiscation Act 2002.

The 69-year-old man is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 20 September 2016.

Operation Lima Violin II remains ongoing.

As these matters are now before the court, the CCC and QPS are unable to comment further.

Members of the public can learn more about cold-call investment frauds by reviewing material prepared by the CCC, QPS, Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) available at www.ccc.qld.gov.au or  http://www.police.qld.gov.au/ .
