Pastor Colin Davids multimillion-rand Ponzi scheme case postponed to November
The Bellville Commercial Crimes Court has postponed the long-running case of Colin Davids, the pastor accused of running a multimillion-rand Ponzi scheme, to November 29.
In affidavits filed in court, the AFU presented evidence that Platinum Forex, a close corporation based in Parow, unlawfully collected more than R100 million from unsuspecting members of the public under the guise that it was a lawful investor that invests in foreign exchange investments, also known as forex.
In April 2017, Davids lost the first round of the case in court after a judge ordered that R100 million in funds be handed back to his investors.At the time, the court said that of the more than R300 million that was initially invested in Platinum Forex, only about R100 million remained, and the judge ruled that a curator would oversee the process of distributing the frozen funds to investors.
The court papers said that the actions of Platinum Forex contravened various provisions of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act, and the Banks Act.This is because Platinum Forex was not registered as a financial service provider and was not legally allowed to conduct the business of a banker. headtopics.com
The AFU’s joint investigations with its partners, the Financial Intelligence Centre, the Financial Services Board and the Hawks, revealed that, instead of investing the monies it collected, Platinum Forex used some of the funds received from the public for its own benefit.
Platinum Forex also made false promises to members of the public that their so-called investments would yield interest returns of between 48% and 84%.Platinum Forex began operations in August 2013, but contrary to promises made to its clients that their money would be invested in the forex market, some of the money was in fact invested in short term investment accounts.
These accounts were held with ACM Gold, a Gauteng-based entity Forex Trading (Pty) Ltd and Nedbank.Read more: IOL News »
