End of the Line

The Far North has always had a reputation as an "end of the line" place which attracts those seeking to escape until they get to where the road goes no further. A curious news snippet surfaced today that Cairns police arrested a conman on Britains "Most Wanted" list following a random breath test.

Robert Taylor-Barefoot had been in Cairns more than a year and operating a business under the alias Sam Jeffers.
He had set up an advertising firm advising how to maximise marketing prospects through social media and claimed to work closely with internet giants Google and Twitter and to be a close friend of Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.
The business website of "Sam Jeffers" still remains: SJMEDIA

  1. Amazing how long it took for the Cairns news media to pick up on this story_ even though the Cairns Post was made aware of it on the 14th October - the day after he was arrested - they didn't actually have any interest until it was news in the UK after he had been deported!
    Who were "Sam Jeffers" clients in Cairns - who did he rip off while he was here??? Who is yet to discover they have been ripped off by this conman???
