Ogilvie said she had no idea at the time that Caddick was misusing her clients’ funds. “I was just so nervous that Melissa did something dishonest and possibly illegal,” Ogilvie said.
Porter later told Ogilvie that ASIC was investigating Caddick. When asked by a lawyer supporting Louise Coleman if she ever spoke to Caddick about the ASIC investigation, Ogilvie replied “absolutely not.” She never spoke to Caddick again after her funds were returned, she said.
The investigation found that as of August 21, 2020, Ogilvie got all her money back, plus the approximately $380,000 in winnings.
Caddick’s husband Anthony Koletti, who took the stand after Ogilvie, said he had “no knowledge” of his wife’s cheating.
Koletti, a hairstylist, said his wife’s earnings and tax returns “weren’t really something I paid attention to… I’m not really financially savvy.”
“It certainly came as a surprise to me,” he said of the November 11, 2020 raid on her home by Australian Federal Police and ASIC. However, Koletti said he wasn’t worried about it as “I just didn’t think she had done anything wrong.”
His wife disappeared in the early hours of the following day, just hours after their home was raided in connection with the ASIC investigation into the $23 million Ponzi scheme Caddick, 49, has been running since 2012. Most of their victims were family and friends.
Her right foot, which contained her partial remains, washed up on a remote beach on the New South Wales south coast in February 2021, three months after she was last seen.
Koletti’s evidence continues.
