Poker Player Defrauds Bank Out Of $100 Million

  • Professional poker player William Jordanou, 55, is accused of providing false documents to the Commonwealth Bank of Australia in order to get about $100 million in loans with three other men.   He faces 142 charges.

    Jordanou was acting as a financial adviser to a Scoresby-based accounting firm between the years 2004 and 2013.  He is alleged to have provided the bank with false tax documents, letters of employment and invoices.

    His lawyer George Defteros asserted his client would strenuously fight the charges. ‘

    ‘There’s nothing in that takes us by shock in any of the allegations,’’ Defteros told the court. ‘‘We’ve been waiting for the charges & we’re going to defend them strenuously. ‘‘We welcome these charges 'cause Mr Jordanou wants to get on with his life.’’

    Jordanou is out on bail.  A hearing is to commence in September and some 150 witnesses are expected to be called to testify.
