THE true cost of ‘Sir’ Nigel Goldman’s dodgy investment scheme will reach into the millions, it has been revealed.
More and more victims are coming forward and according to Antonio Flores, of Lawbird solicitors, the figure has already reached the three million euro mark.
Flores, who is acting on behalf of some of the victims who lost money to the unregulated financial advisor, said: “In our most recent estimate it looks like reaching well over €3 million.”
The Olive Press revealed last issue that Goldman had fled his home in the Costa del Sol, leaving investors with nothing, after having his assets frozen.
The Guardia Civil is now appealing for those affected to come forward and has set up a specific case file under the name ‘Nigel Goldman’.
“So far we have spoken to victims in Almeria, Malaga and Jaen,” said Flores last night.
Comments flooded to the Olive Press website meanwhile with few people shocked by the revelations.
One commenter Roger Parkes, said: “I have known Goldman for some 35 years, but I wouldn’t shake hands with him without counting my fingers afterwards.
“When he showed me the prospectus for International Financial Investments at his palatial (rented) home in Elviria a few months ago I couldn’t stop laughing.
“By the way has anyone else noticed that the initials of his company spell ‘IFI.’”
Olive Press sources indicate that he is now hiding in the west of England.
