Two more men charged over boiler room frauds — 29.09.2015

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has charged two more men over their alleged involvement in boiler room investment frauds on the Gold Coast.

The charges are the result of the joint CCC-QPS Operation Unwind, which saw two active boiler rooms closed down last month (see previous media releases from 17 August, 18 August and 19 August 2015).

A 33-year-old Robina man was today charged with one count of aggravated fraud contrary to section 408C of the Criminal Code (Qld). He was released on bail on an undertaking to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 22 October 2015.

The CCC and the QPS will allege the man was the general manager of a scheme which sold fraudulent investment products through the following companies:

  • Advance Wealth Systems (AWS)
  • Anderson Wilson Stuart (AWS)
  • Patterson Harvey
  • PHG Trading
  • Pierson Hopkins Group.

Today a 27-year-old Upper Coomera man was also charged with one count of aggravated fraud contrary to section 408C of the Criminal Code (Qld). He was released on bail on an undertaking to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 13 October 2015.

It will be alleged that he generated websites for a number of companies including Adamson's Financial Services Pty Ltd (AFS) and Compass Capital Group Pty Ltd (CCG Markets). It will be alleged that these websites promoted fraudulent investment products and contained false and fabricated information.

Investigators from the joint CCC-QPS taskforce are interested in speaking with any person who believes they are a victim of the companies listed above or who may have information regarding persons involved in the operation of these companies. Contact with investigators can be made through Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via email [email protected] .

The investigation is ongoing. As these matters are before the courts, it is not appropriate to comment further.
