Police raid two Boiler Rooms on Gold Coast

At last police have raided some of the scammers!

Not sure which ones yet but it sounds like two operations covering six schemes.



15 May: Apparently it was John Hanneman, who had run such scams as Proficient First, International Arb Trading, International Sports Online, Tablink Sporstbet and Excellence IV.

18 May: The Age reports on the raid on Betjack


NSW police had alerted the QLD police to him as far back as 2011. The ABC did this report in 2013: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-09-13/victims-angry-gambling-scam-still-operating/4260558

Proficient First

Heres a great report by the 7.30 report on ABC tv about a scam and scams run by the company Proficient First, trading through schemes named International Arb Trading and TablinkSportsbet.
