It's not yet known whether they belong to missing Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick.
Fifteen people who claim alleged conwoman Melissa Caddick ripped them off have demanded her opulent Sydney mansion be sold immediately to pay them back the millions they say they are owed.
Caddick vanished on November 12, two days after Federal Police raided her Dover Heights home for allegedly stealing tens of millions in investors' funds.
The financial adviser had been under investigation by the corporate regulator, ASIC, for at least three months before disappearing while on a morning walk.
ASIC was probing whether Caddick's company Maliver Pty Ltd had misused millions from investors. The investors were largely friends and associates.
Missing businesswoman Melissa Caddick's bank accounts contain less than $6,000, court hears
Melissa Caddick, who went missing in November shortly after the corporate watchdog ASIC raided her home, has just $5,600 in her bank accounts, a court hears.Provisional liquidators and receivers have now provided reports on the 49-year-old's assets to the Federal Court of Australia, after she went missing in November.
A lawyer for 15 of those investors - who invested a combined $6million with Caddick - has drafted 'position papers' setting out a claim over Caddick's estate.
But allegedly duped investors are likely to only receive 21 cents back for every dollar invested.
Police thought Melissa Caddick was alive — three key factors combined to prove otherwise
Police thought missing Sydney woman Melissa Caddick was still alive — a "fortuitous" series of events combined to prove otherwise.Campers at a little-known beach find a shoe — in it, the "badly decomposed" foot of a high-profile missing person.
It's estimated the alleged fraudster may owe as much as $25million to all her clients, but her net assets only sit at about $5.6million.
Investors claim that Caddick's family, including her hairdresser husband Anthony Koletti and her 15-year-old son, are 'living on trust money of the investors'.
'Why is it her dependants can continue to live a privileged life on our money when, for us, our choices have been removed?' One of the 15 investors told
'What's happened has been deeply upsetting and disheartening. We have to get on with our working lives, we have to be parents, it has affected our entire lives and our children.'
Lawyer Dominic Calabria, who is representing the group, stated in documents that Caddick's $7.5million Dover Heights mansion would be worth just $3,370,446.93 when the mortgage is paid.
'Ms Caddick and Mr Koletti household and the Caddick family members have been financing their living expenses for some period of time, seemingly many years, through the use of investor funds … for how long is it reasonable for Caddick family members to continue to live on investors funds,' he said.

'No one is seeking to "punish" any other innocent member of the Caddick family. The Bridges Investors are sympathetic to the extent that those family members are also victims.'
Claims have since been made that Caddick, 49, swindled millions from clients and ASIC documents show she owned luxury cars, travelled widely and splurged hundreds of thousands of dollars on high end fashion labels.
On her American Express card alone, Caddick allegedly spent $229,277 at Dior, $187,000 at Canturi Jewellers, $48,000 at Chanel and $52,548 at Cosmopolitan shoes.
The documents also reveal how Caddick also splurged on holidays to Fiji, New York and Aspen.
Ms Caddick is accused of doctoring fake CommSec documents showing her clients were making extraordinary returns.
Documents show she used her client's investment money to pay off her personal credit card bill, as well as make loan repayments for an Edgecliff penthouse she bought for her parents.

Damning financial records show that from the start of 2018 through to September last year, more than $20million was deposited into Caddick's accounts.
She has since withdrawn all but $700,000.
NSW Police Chief Mick Fuller on Monday revealed Caddick may have drastically changed her appearance to disguise herself in the local community - or that she somehow fled the country.
He told Radio 2GB detectives don't have specific leads as to who, if anyone, was assisting her.
But the veteran cop added if the suspected runaway conwoman has in fact fled overseas, she likely had help.
'You have to safely assume if her journey was to leave Australia and go overseas - particularly with the challenge of getting out of the country without specific Border Force approval - one would think she would have to have the help of someone,' Mr Fuller told breakfast host Ben Fordham.
It's not suggested that Caddick's husband Anthony Koletti or family played a role in her disappearance or have any knowledge of where she is.
