An attempt to raise at least £6 million from victims of the Centaur Group litigation funding fraud by March 31st to fund a dubious Cayman Islands-domiciled 'rescue fund' failed - so the three Australia-based businessmen behind the scheme - Simon Franklin, Stuart Hackett and Klaus Selinger - extended the deadline to April 17th.
Investors who have already been swindled out of £98 million in a litigation funding scam by Buttonwood Legal Capital are being asked to invest a further £14.63 million to finance a Cayman Islands-domiciled 'rescue fund' set up by Simon Franklin, Stuart Hackett, and Klaus Selinger, who were all involved with the Buttonwood scheme before its collapse.

Claim Form in Buttonwood Legal Capital Ltd. and Centaur Subscription Holdings Limited v. Scott Williams, Brendan Terrill, Centaur Escrow Client Account Limited, and Asia Pacific Beneficiaries Limited at the British Virgin Islands High Court.
The slow and chaotic collapse of a fraudulent litigation funding group known as Argentum, Buttonwood and Centaur that was triggered by an OffshoreAlert exposé four months ago has finally hit the courts, with four actions filed in the BVI and Cayman.
Claims by BVI-domiciled Buttonwood Legal Capital that it applied last month to liquidate three affiliated investment funds in the Cayman Islands that go by the name 'Centaur' are false, OffshoreAlert can reveal. No such petitions were filed.
