New Zealander arrested for fraud in Bengaluru

Denise Driver, 52, who was arrested for involvement in a ponzi scheme has confessed to fraudulently obtaining over $10 million. Bengaluru police announced her arrest along with three Indian men. Police say Ms Driver is the head of the Asia-Pacific branch of YOBSN Social Media Network that lures people into investing in their own social media network, then asks investors to recruit other people to the scheme for a commission. Bengaluru police authorities said Driver is cooperating with police and voluntarily gave them her log in password and showed them that she had recruited 32,000 members. Auckland lawyer Jeremy Bioletti, who specialises in serious fraud, said he had followed Driver's arrest and believed she was just a front for international fraudsters who operated behind the scenes. She was arrested because multi-level marketing schemes are banned in India.
