Are You Being Ripped Off?

It never ceases to amaze me the number of people that are ripped off with sham investments and get caught up with unworkable offshore strategies. Some of you have probably heard of all the usual scams such as Nigerian Letter Scams, Ponzi schemes, and Pyramid selling schemes etc, there are a "million" of them.
 
These schemes operate predominantly outside of Australia, which makes the job of getting your money back or stopping the operators almost impossible. In addition, there is an "industry" in offshore trusts and companieswhereby investors and business people are offered offshore "entities" at what are perceived to be bargain prices. Some of the prices I have heard of, are as much as 10 times the normal real price. Many offer offshore trusts and the promoters tell people that they will never have to pay tax again.
 
However, they leave one vital piece of information out of the sales pitch, and that is they have to technically break the law to achieve these tax breaks. I have spoken at length to fellow accountants, solicitors and incorporation agents over the years and we have all come to the same conclusion, they often don't work and they are not legal because of the way they are setup.
 
I have been involved with Australian taxation for 20 years, it has been a big part of my professional life as an accountant and I cringe when I hear what some people have been told. They are told that if you set up an offshore "entity" , you don't have to pay tax anymore because you just put all your local business dealings through the offshore company and bank your money offshore - Result? No tax!...Wrong, this is 100% illegal and you could end up in jail if the numbers are big enough. Advice like this is always passed on to the unsuspecting person by a "sales person", never an accountant or solicitor. Before committing yourself to any of these "schemes", check with your accountant or solicitor first.
 
If you want to know about the most convincing and popular scams around and what to do about them, then Scams and Frauds is the book for you.
