BET PROBE EYES INMATE – Wednesday May 1 2013

– A racing identity is under investigation by police over a huge online betting scam that entangled dozens of AFL footballers.
Tim Magnus, who is banned from racetracks, is a person of interest in a probe of the multi-million-dollar betting syndicate.
Magnus was jailed in February last year for a minimum of 33 months for his part in a betting syndicate in which investors lost $1.5 million. It was alleged that Magnus talked 34 people into investing telling them he’d place bets on races in Britain.
Racing authorities warned him off NSW tracks, where he owned city-class winners, in 2008.
The state’s board of racing had considered his role in the purchase and sale of thoroughbreds, his borrowing of money and failure to repay those debts, and his wrongly recording ownership of some horses under his management.
The Herald Sun revealed in October that dozens of AFL footballers were among investors who lost $1 million in the latest betting scam. Police have allegedly linked Magnus to that syndicate.
Another Queensland man implicated in the scam did not return calls this week.
Investors say he had regularly promised they would get their money back, without result.
Among those to lose cash was a crime victim whose compensation has now gone.
Police confirmed detectives from the Melbourne Criminal Investigation Unit were now making inquiries into the online scam.
“Police have been told victims were invited to place money into an account of an online betting syndicate and a professional punter would place bets in behalf of the syndicate,” a spokesman said – Mark Buttler

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
