Nigel Goldman fraud case moves to Fuengirola court

GUILTY: Goldman

THE on-going investigation into British fraudster Nigel Goldman – now Howard Del Monte – has been moved to a court in Fuengirola.

It comes after the case, now 14 months old, was wrongly filed to courts in Barcelona and then Marbella.

The infamous conman fled the Costa del Sol just over a year ago, amid accusations of stealing thousands of euros from his investment clients.

The Olive Press tracked him down to the UK, where he was discovered selling coins and antiques on eBay from a small cottage in the Berkshire countryside.

“The Courts have not dropped the case, in fact, they would never do so until Goldman is interrogated,” said Antonio Flores, of legal firm Lawbird, who represents 12 separate victims.

Goldman has now moved to a different nearby home in Berkshire to escape his victims, but the pressure is ramping up once more.

Victim Roy Feather, who is owed €550,000, said: “The paperwork is filed in the court, but there still hasn’t been an arrest warrant, and it’s already taken 14 months to get this far.

“You would think they would at least bring him in to answer our claim, given the huge amount of evidence, it’s ridiculous.”

Meanwhile, Vanity Fair and El Pais have both been begun separate investigations into the criminal, following the Olive Press’ coverage.

In his own book, High Stakes, Goldman admits to having been jailed twice previously for fraud.

The Jewish poker fanatic, who has bizarrely declared his support for controversial British party UKIP on his Facebook page, was one of the coast’s most colourful characters before his sudden flight to Britain.

  1. We would be very interested to hear the outcome of the Spanish courts but what can they do without Goldman in attendance? Can he be extradited? he has stolen our money too and we have been to see a journalist from Vanity Fair in November. We are willing to speak with ou if you are interested.
    Kind regards,

  2. There is always a risk when investing money. It’s in the small print when you sign your agreement. There has been a recession, the investments took a dive. Nigel Goldman also lost a substantial amount. That’s life! If you don’t want to lose, don’t gamble by investing!

    • Dee , you are either a friend of Nigel or you have not followed the story well. Yes people lose money in investments that can go bad due to recession or stock market collapse but Nigel is a fraudster and in many cases he did not even invest the clients money where he said he would. He forged documents, certificates etc so he is a low life scumbag, cheat, thief and liar. Do your homework before you defend crooks like Nigel Goldman.

  3. Dee,
    you obviously know zero about financial investment. You can make money when markets are rising and when they are falling. Investing does’nt have to be a gamble, it’s all about risk assessment. The biggest no-no today when markets can change dramatically within minutes not months or years as in the past is never to get locked into any investment you can’t get out of with a phone call or online command.

    Marion – spot on and if you have had the intelligence to make money in the past why not manage your own money now – when a man approaches wearing a nice business suit and driving a nice car – who do you think is paying for them?

  4. I agree with Modestos Modestou, as if Goldman has lost money!! That a joke, we has absconded with up to 3mil€ of other people’s money…stashed away for when the whole affair quiets down…hehas lost nothing! He had no money of his own in the first place, everything, even cars where rented!

  5. Hello,
    He stole all my inherits that my dad left me over 250,000, i invested in gold coins ,then he sent them to USA that was the last time I saw them. Also he was saving my children’s money in a morocco bank which went. When I asked for it back he said I had to wait 3 months that’s was in 2012 .I lost my house in Spain because of this man
