Five Gold Coast men charged over two-year $330,000 'phone scam'© Supplied Queensland police urge would-be investors to remain vigilant. Five Gold Coast men were the masterminds behind two fake businesses used to fleece $330,000 from victims over the phone as part of a two-year investment scam, according to police.

It will be alleged the companies appeared legitimate and convinced victims their investment had produced a significant profit, but they needed to make an extra payment to release the funds.

But police said the investment did not deliver as promised, the profit never existed and the victims never received their funds.

Five men, aged between 45 and 75, were arrested last month and each charged this month with 11 counts of fraud.

Financial and Cyber Crime Group Detective Superintendent Terry Lawrence said the cold call investment scam allegedly ran between 2013 and 2015.

"We ask the community to remain alert to and resilient against this type of offending. Always seek independent financial advice concerning any unsolicited telephone calls or emails offering investment opportunities," he said.

"Through the QPS campaign, R U in Control, we continue to provide updates on the latest scams and offer simple measures on how people can avoid financial and cybercrime."

One man is due to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on Tuesday and the others are due to appear in the coming weeks.
