Gold Coasters may have been victims to fraud scheme

GOLD Coasters targeted through an alleged fraud scheme are being urged to come forward.

A 45-year-old Chinese national is accused of stripping people of thousands of dollars while acting as an international investor with an interest in multi-million dollar residential investing in Brisbane.

He has been slapped with fifty fraud charges after extensive investigations into a range of fraud related incidents.


The charges relate to valueless cheques and associated frauds committed across the State, from the Gold Coast to Cairns.

Police will allege the man targets Chinese links and fraudulently obtains money with victims thought to be losing up to $45,000 per week.

Police are appealing for victims within the Chinese community that may have fallen victim to similar incidents to come forward via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
