EDITOR’S COMMENT(3/18/2020):  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. 

The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, information that did not conform to current policies and/or the identifying information relating to the individual(s) and/or business(es) named in this “Report” and any subsequent comments thereto have been editorially redacted as indicated by the following “(((REDACTED)))” or (((REDACTED DUE TO PERCEIVED HARASSMENT / REVENGE POST)))”.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THESE TYPES OF ISSUES:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with personal commentary and/or allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking HERE NOW or learn a little more by visiting our “Donate to our Efforts” page.  The more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Thank you!

Any older, well off men in Melbourne, Australia, should steer clear of this woman as she prays on older wealthier men, often men that are old enough to be her father, and men that are perhaps ill of health.

(((REDACTED))), born (((REDACTED))), was born in 1953 in (((REDACTED))). She has also been recorded using the name (((REDACTED))).

(((REDACTED))) seeks out these elder, well off men using numerous tactics from online dating services, browsing obituaries looking for Widowers through to casual encounters. It matters not how she gets to meet her mark, as long as he is well off enough.

She is quick to befriend her mark and then fool them into believing that She and He are an item as soon as possible.

(((REDACTED))) also uses her son (((REDACTED))) and her daughter (((REDACTED))), whom are seemingly willing cohorts in her fraudulent and malicious conduct, as will be illustrated below in the example case.


Example Case

In circa 2004, (((REDACTED))) met a man by the name of (((REDACTED))), who was about 78 years of age at the time, some 26 years older than (((REDACTED))). (((REDACTED))) was a widower of some 16 years and with only one surviving daughter. He was well off, with a house in (((REDACTED))), which is a wealthy, beachside suburb of Melbourne. (((REDACTED))) not only owned his property outright, he also had a significant share portfolio and bank balance.

Lonely (((REDACTED))) probably thought he had won the lotto when he found himself with a new lady in his life, one that was 26 years his junior and seemingly cared for him. (((REDACTED))) lived in a house in (((REDACTED))), a nearby suburb to Brighton, but not close to the class of Brighton. This house was owned by a company named OurBrad Pty LTD, of which (((REDACTED))) and her daughter (((REDACTED))) were both joint directors and joint shareholders in same. And of course, this house had a substantial mortgage on it, but not for long..

(((REDACTED))) managed to talk dear old (((REDACTED))) into paying out her mortgage by essentially transferring the property to two parties. One being (((REDACTED))) and the other party being (((REDACTED))) son (((REDACTED))).

So from the outside looking in, it seems that (((REDACTED))) assets are still O.K as he now owns half of this house and his will leaves everything to his only surviving daughter and or other family.

But the scheming (((REDACTED))) had other ideas. She had been milking Arthur to support a failing photography business “(((REDACTED))) Family Photos” which was not really a business as in a company, but a business name (((REDACTED)))had under her own name as a sole trader, and to which she used to get contract work from another company. Of course this was just a ruse, as the money he supported her with was not going into building a company, more likely, it was getting funneled off into her own private accounts.

A few years go by and poor old (((REDACTED))) is not doing well health wise. In fact in the time leading up to his death in 2011, (((REDACTED))) was on so many medications; he didn’t know if he was (((REDACTED))) or (((REDACTED))) most of the time.

Time for (((REDACTED))) to strike! While incapacitated, all drugged up and on death’s door, (((REDACTED))) gets (((REDACTED))) to sign a revised will, leaving everything to her. Systematically, she has now taken all that should have rightly gone to (((REDACTED))) daughter, and or his grandchildren. A low act if ever there was one.

Who were the witnesses to this new “will” that robbed (((REDACTED))) family of their inheritance? Surely witnesses needed to be in his presence when he signed the new will…

Not only was (((REDACTED))), able to secure her own home with funds from (((REDACTED))), she also managed to swindle everything else he owned into her or her family’s names. Including (((REDACTED))) own home in Brighton. In fact, when (((REDACTED))) daughter went to his house after his death to do some sorting out of his belongings and such, she found that all the locks on the house had been changed and Lauris was inside and had taken over the (((REDACTED))) property.

(((REDACTED))) and (((REDACTED))) never married, and they resided in separate residences. It is not even likely that the relationship was anything but platonic in nature. So it beggars belief that she was in anyway entitled to anything, not without being deceptive in any case.

By December 2011, just 6 months after (((REDACTED))) had passed away, (((REDACTED))) son Joshua (((REDACTED))) claimed (((REDACTED))) share in the (((REDACTED)))East property by way of a Survivorship Application, which was granted. (((REDACTED))) had a mortgage on this property for his part of the proprietorship with the WestPac Banking Corporation, but he also took the 50% share from (((REDACTED))) after (((REDACTED))) death. And now we have (((REDACTED))), owning this property outright with the mortgage being fully discharged by 2018, likely in part with funds that were deceptively taken from poor old (((REDACTED))) estate.

Coincidentally, (((REDACTED))) now works with the (((REDACTED))). Would they condone such behavior? It is doubtful; in fact they may look very grimly at such acts.


In closing, be warned folks, especially wealthier older men who live in areas such as Brighton, South Yarra and Toorak etc. This woman and obviously her family, have charm and the skills to fleece you and your families.

AUTHOR: (((REDACTED)))  - (Australia)

POSTED: Saturday, January 25, 2020

None of it is true. My name is (((REDACTED)))  and I am the daughter of (((REDACTED))) , the woman your website is helping to spread malicious rumours about. Several years ago my mother met a man by the name of (((REDACTED))) . Known as (((REDACTED))) . She invested her superannuation into one of his businesses. 

Unfortunately, it turned out that (((REDACTED)))  has a very long history of scams and frauds and my mother was merely one of his many victims and lost all her money. She has been tied in a court case for several years now trying to get her money back. 

He has been doing everything in his power to destroy her life from threats, making up false stories such as the one above, which he is posting under fake email accounts on international sites knowing that we can’t have them legally removed even though they’re complete lies. 

You really have to ask why would someone post this on an international site and NOT an Australian site if it was legitimate. If you want to post about the real fraudster, you should read the following news stories of his criminal history. I’d appreciate it if you removed this story, photos etc.




I'm not sure what I can provide as further proof in terms of paperwork etc as you are in the USA and not Australia?  

I would be grateful for your assistance.
