In the wake of the GFC, architect Tony Camilleri hoped to rebuild his battered retirement portfolio and was open to investment opportunities.

And then his phone rang. A cold call. A confident pitch from a charming stock broker. The kind of call that embodies the adage ‘if it’s too good to be true, well…’

  • Tony Camilleri
  • IFW Global Executive Chairman, Ken Gamble
  • CommBank’s General Manager of Group Fraud, James Roberts
  • NSW Police Force Cybercrime Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Matthew Craft
