Mail order scam company targeting elderly victims. Forced by court order to return over A$150,000 to 5,500 victims.

Operating under the names of Anthony Carr, Valerie Taylor and United Equity Limited, the organisation sought payments of A$15-A$30 for its services (clairvoyants' reports and false lottery winnings).

The letters were to be mailed to a Mascot (NSW, Australia) post office box before they were transferred to Canada.
