Charges for promising mining work
A Coromandel man has appeared in court after allegedly promising people jobs in Australian mines.
Frank Allan Yeates, 60, entered no plea to three charges in the Hamilton District Court this morning and was granted bail back to his Coromandel address.
Yeates appeared on charges of: knowingly party to a company (AAAjobforyou NZ Ltd) carrying on a business with intent to defraud members of the public; making a false statement on AAAjobforyou's website with intent to decieve that part of P.F and D.T.M International Group and making a false statement with intent to decieve persons on the company's website that it had mining industry positions available when this was not the case.
All charges are related to alleged offending between March 28 and June 30.
Yeates held several seminars, including one in Hamilton, for people hoping to work in Australian mines.
He was arrested at Auckland International Airport late last month where he was about to board a flight to Australia.
Yeates, 60, was remanded on bail to his Coromandel address until next month.
