Reho fraudster sentence


Melbourne corporate travel specialist Reho Travel unfortunat­ely acquired more than just a business in mid-2015 when it took over corporate conference and incentive specialist NGT Travel. As revealed during a court case finalised last month, one of NGT’S staff had her fingers in the till,

and stole about $100,000 to fuel a gambling and methamphet­amine habit. It’s understood the fraud was confirmed by Reho Travel CEO Karsten Horne, who conducted an investigat­ion in late 2017 after receving a tip-off. Enzo Testa ultimately pleaded guilty to obtaining financial advantage by deception, with the scheme involving funnelling payments to accounts held by a “friend or associate” which had been masked as false invoices to the company’s corporate clients. Testa was given a three year community correction­s order.
