Police have recently cautioned the public concerning investment fraud following the arrest of four individuals involved in a cold-call scam operation that managed to defraud more than $1.5 million from approximately 30 victims. The investigation, spanning 18 months, targeted companies including Crypto Advisers Australia, Strategic Capital, Active Marketing Solutions, and Alternative Capital. The accused individuals are alleged to have laundered the funds through cryptocurrency, precious metals, luxury cars, and real estate in an attempt to conceal the money trail.

Three of the accused individuals, Harry Omeros, Vicky Omeros, and Kristy Sleep, each face a charge of money laundering, with their cases adjourned until May 9. Another individual, a 46-year-old man, appeared in court charged with four counts of fraud and one count of money laundering, with his next court appearance scheduled for May 27. Detective Superintendent Craig McGrath emphasized the importance of conducting due diligence and seeking independent advice before engaging in any investment opportunities to avoid falling prey to such fraudulent schemes.
