Is John Bernard done for? I hope this is the end

In a multi-part series I’ve been following through Krebs on Security, looks like the person behind this alias walked away with 30 million dollars. There have been quite a number of people who have been interview as I probably would have suspected. A portion of one paragraph says:

John Bernard is in fact John Clifton Davies, a 59-year-old U.K. citizen who absconded from justice before being convicted on multiple counts of fraud in
2015. Prior to his conviction, Davies served 16 months in jail before being cleared of murdering his third wife on their honeymoon in India.

When I braught this up as part of podcast number 10 when we first talked about this, one of our callers indicated that this was interesting and it prompted quite a bit of questioning. I was confused by this and reread that section again and it makes me wonder why he only got 16 months for that. Its not known.

To make this story more interesting:

Bernard found a constant stream of new marks by offering extraordinarily generous finders fees to investment brokers who could introduce him to companies
seeking an infusion of cash. When it came time for companies to sign legal documents, Bernard’s victims interacted with a 40-something Inside Knowledge
employee named “Katherine Miller,” who claimed to be his lawyer.

So we have a woman involved in this as well, and there isn’t much known about her. There are a lot of links within this article linking to various things as this investigation continues. I am going to talk about this more for podcast 14 of the Security Box, as we talk about Scams and the like over here.

Want to read more and the very interesting details? Krebs has the third part entitled Promising Infusions of Cash, Fake Investor John Bernard Walked Away With $30M and enjoy the continuing saga.
