NSW strata managers charged with fraud

A Blackbutt couple have been accused of failing to account for more than $1.2 million from their Wollongong strata management business.

The Illawarra Mercury reported Gordana and Roger Ocvirk fronted Wollongong Local Court last week to face allegations that they fraudulently omitted to account for $1,235,402 from their business Strata Decisions Wollongong.

Mr Ocvirk, who went missing for several days last year, is also accused of failing to account for nearly $200,000 received by his other business, Dougmal Harcourts Warilla, according to the Illawarra Mercury.

The Ocvirks, both 39, have also been charged with failing to properly supervise operations at Strata Decisions. All the incidents are alleged to have occurred between August 1, 2010 and January 31, 2012. Both businesses operate under the company Bayelm P/L.

NSW Fair Trading started investigating the Warilla real estate agency when they discovered an alleged $1-million gap in its books. Auditor Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu was appointed in January last year to manage Dougmal Harcourts Warilla after alleged discrepancies totalling $1,050,000.

Bayelm P/L co-director Tom Ivan Imre also appeared in court charged with failing to properly supervise the real estate agency’s operations. He has not been charged with any fraud offences.
