Three directors charged with conspiring to cheat investors

SINGAPORE : Three directors of investment firm Profitable Plots were charged on Tuesday with conspiring to cheat investors of US$2.4 million.

They are Britons 58-year-old Timothy Nicholas Goldring and 53-year-old John Andrew Nordmann, and Nordmann's Singaporean wife, 44-year-old Geraldine Anthony Thomas.

The trio, who allegedly committed the offences between 2008 and 2010, were charged with 86 counts of abetment by conspiracy.

They allegedly duped their victims into investing in a scheme to buy a product, Boron CLS Bond, a chemical-based lubricant technology.
