John Varoujan: Interpol wants Aussie conman who defrauded investors of millions


AN Aussie conman has been placed on Interpol’s wanted list after he duped an Arab sheik out of $US500,000.

Flamboyant fraudster John Varoujan is already on the run from Australia after he duped investors out of $40 million.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal that the conman was placed behind bars by police in the United Arab Emirates but after four days Australian diplomats secured his release.

George Thomas, vice president of the Al-Bassam Group in Dubai, said: “This man presented a very convincing prospectus for his Gold Hedge Royalty company to our principal on his yacht and he invested $US500,000.”

But shortly after receiving the money Varoujan, whose real name is Varoujan Yaghldjian, fled the country.

“After we had discovered he was a scam artist we found out that he was back in Abu Dhabi on a visit,” said Mr Thomas, who arranged a sting to try and catch him.

“One of my team posed on the telephone as an investor and insisted on a face-to-face meeting to hand him the cash for the investment. Before my guy could get to the meeting Varoujan decided to leave his hotel where the meeting was supposed to take place,” he said.

“We do not know why — maybe he was tipped off or just got cold feet or even perhaps it seemed too good to be true that someone wanted to hand over cash.”

The police swooped and grabbed the Aussie fraudster as he fled the hotel and put him behind bars. But after four days diplomats from the Australian embassy pushed for him to be charged or released.

Because the original funds had been transferred from Saudi Arabia the UAE police decided no crime had been committed and released him.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed it “provided consular assistance to an Australian man in Dubai” in 2009 but would not comment further.

“Since then it has become a point of principal to get our money back,” said Mr Thomas. The latest step at the end of last year was to flag Varoujan with Interpol.

Mr Thomas has also put private detectives on his trail. “We understand through sources here that some individuals were scammed for many millions of US dollars.

“Also through our research we discovered that the City of London Police financial crimes unit believe this man has accumulated at least $US 45m through his nefarious schemes.”

Varoujan was the chairman of the Armenian Chamber of Commerce in Sydney and dazzled almost 70 Australian investors with a glossy prospectus for his Gold Hedge Royalty Corporation promising to invest in gold mines and bullion. On the cover it said: “In gold we trust.”

He met investors in Cannes in the South of France where he had a suite in the Carlton Hotel and claimed he was the money manager for the Saudi Royal family. Others were entertained on the deck of a luxury 60 metre cruiser with a jacuzzi on the deck.

He stayed at the Moscow Hotel in Dubai, an expensive and notorious pick-up spot for Eastern European prostitutes, and invited would be investors to a business meeting in Rome with “Vatican financiers” as part of a bogus 200 million Euro bullion deal.

Australian Securities and Investments Commission investigators swooped as soon as they were alerted to the con and cancelled his financial services licence. But he had already fled the country.

He remains on the run.
