Funds for Justice

Association of Defrauded Investors Legal Fund

The Association of Defrauded Investors invites you to join us in funding legal action to expose and oppose the Mt Burrell land-share scams runs by Mark Darwin, Adrian Brennock and associates, that have left investors defrauded of over $1.5 million.

I am Gi Linda, one of 21 investors who paid the purchase price for a 640 acre property at Mt Burrell, NSW, Australia, intended for a land-share community. 

I was defrauded in this venture of my inheritance, others have lost their entire life savings. We have very little left to fight costly legal battles, so we have done our own research and I have been self-representing in the Local Court, Qld Federal Court and NSW Supreme Court in our quest for justice.

The aspiring "developers", Mark Darwin and Adrian Brennock, misled investors with false assurances that we would be co-owners of the land with effective control over its management. Investors were also deceived about potential permissible land use and the status of development approval applications.

The land was not bought and registered in a Community Association, as promised, but was purchased with our funds by a private company with Adrian Brennock as self-appointed director and sole shareholder, effectively owning our land with a $1 share.

No development application was ever initiated and those who paid for the land were evicted without return of our funds. Two years later, after many empty promised of restitution, Brennock has put the company in Voluntary Administration, falsely claiming insolvency, in a "phoenix move" to transfer the land to a different company under their control, while permanently disenfranchising all who paid the purchase price of the land.

You can read about the Darwin/Brennock land-share "ethical investment opportunity" on our blog:

We began "Funds for Justice" to help us finance professional legal assistance to complete the litigation process successfully. A Crowdfunder launched on Nov 8, "Fund$ for Justice" exceeded its goal of $5,000 in one day and is now closed. The Association of Defrauded Investors thanks those who have helped to cover the costs of starting a forensic investigation into Mt Burrell "community-village" land-share scams. 

Another Crowdfunder will be launched shortly to help cover ongoing legal costs. 

Thank you for your help!

We thank all who are supporting us and deeply appreciate your stand against this fraudulent land-share venture that has already claimed many victims and affects the entire local community.
