    They're still around though one bad one, Victor Warren OLLIS, is now somewhere in rural NSW.... Google it. He worked for Peter Kurts selling "beach view" land on Mt Tamborine to Victorians back in the 70's and went on to rip off Pensioners with a major scam in the mid-80's.

    Many cons in Oz revolve around over-valued/over-priced property.
    Cheers, Rob.

    $439,000? - Not a bad payday that

    Costa Del Sol...?? Way too hard.Thailand.......ppfffff.....! They are like eagles compared to here...555

    In Australia It appears he didn't have to try too hard as we are only too happy to host (Legitimate visa holders*) and pay them too.


    ......And then there was Brian Gerald James Goldie. Goldie, a British citizen, spent most of the 1990s in Australia on a series of different visas. In 1995, the Australian Federal Police advised the Immigration Department that warrants had been issued in Edinburgh against him for fraud allegations, prompting officials in 1997 to reject his application for permanent residency.

    He remained in Australia on bridging visas, but in 1998, gaps in the department's computer records - since horribly exposed by the investigation by former AFP head Mick Palmer into the Rau case - led officials to believe he did not have a visa, and should be detained.

    On the day, security guards marched him from his office to the foyer of his company's Perth building, where two officers were waiting to take him into immigration detention. (His company had decided to sack him and would later sue him for more than $417,000 for false use of company cheques.)

    One officer told him that if he resisted he would be handcuffed, while the other made him hand over his mobile phone and briefcase. Telling Goldie he had no choice, one of the pair walked behind him, holding his belt, until they got into a waiting van. At the detention centre, Goldie was searched, made to remove his tie and shoelaces and photographed.

    The belief that he did not have a visa was wrong*, so when he was taken into detention in February 1998, he was falsely imprisoned for three days.

    While his period in detention was far shorter than in the other cases, what upset Goldie was his arrest "in full view of the public in the business area of Perth", being held by the back of the pants while he was moved into a waiting van and being searched on arrival at the detention centre.

    For those three days, he was awarded $22,000.
