A while ago Australian Property Investor magazine reported on the fraudulent and illegal practices of “jacked” real estate contracts and secret “rebates” on sale prices.
The ABC’s Four Corners programme has also exposed the same scams. At the very time the API edition was on newsagents’ shelves real estate agent, David Kelly, from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast appeared in the Maroochydore Magistrates court charged with several counts of fraud against the ANZ Bank.
A Brisbane finance broker, Linda Moretto of 2K Finance, later faced the Brisbane Magistrates Court on more than 50 similar and related fraud, attempted fraud, uttering and forgery charges.
