    Hopefully some hardened criminals will take a liking to him while he is held in custody.

    What I just don't understand is he was doing this for at least 5 years ... Then why on earth did it take so long for him to be charged?

    Best news I have in ten years. When I first met him he took me for lots of money, more then most here I am sure... Please let me know when the court case is, I will fly home for it... YES BUBBA IS WAITING IN THE SMALL HOUSE...

    Yeah, lets wait and see the light sentence he will get and then halve that for good behaviour. My prediction is he will be out in 3 short years and will start where he left off.

    This guy worked at Westpac when I met him and he was let go there, yes some ten years ago, I would like to know what happen to guys who helped him buy Trail Book etc etc, maybe they have some responsibility as well. He was close to these people who gave him the funds to buy the books and encouraged him, make crooked promises, where he never intended to pay for the trail books.

    I'm sure I speak for numerous brokers who have been scammed by this criminal when I say... YAY!

    I'm still disappointed a photo of this guy hasn't been published??

    Maybe Westpac should look how he sold over 400 leads xwestpac account.

    So glad he's in custody, was so close to depositing $70k into his acct for deposit on several large trail books. I'm 99% certain they never existed and would have done my dough! If it sounds too good to be true ...... IT IS!!! Always trust your gut feeling. Throw the book at him!

    I agree with others, how the hell did he do this for 5 years!

    I used to get emails from him all the time and thought it sounded suss. One email stated he could sell me a trail book that would bring in $200k of income a year. Sale price $150k.

    I called his mobile number and left a message to see if it was a mistake. Around 3 weeks later I got a call and was told it definitely was legitimate.

    Luckily I checked him out first which others should have as well. There is this little web site called google. Enter his name and see what you find!
