    Somewhere between 1995 and 2000 Nestor (one of Allister Knight's companies) were just about to go bust. Allistair Knight and business partner Andy Kay quite happily encouraged a $10,000 deposit from me, $40,000 from my good friend, and many others for deposits on houses they were going to build. They had a cunning plan to 'avoid' GST which was a loophole in the law apparently. They were running a fine line between legal and illegal. Only one person that I knew ever got any of their money back and it took years. They had many property ventures on the go simultaneously and my understanding is that they were using the money that I gave them to (illegally) fund their other ventures in a desperate bid to stay afloat. They were very good with communication and selling the dream until they got the money and things started to go pear shaped. There was never a word of problems, an apology, in fact there was zero communication on their behalf after they got the money. I could go on about their deception, and finding out that this was nothing new at least for Andy Kay.
    Hope this is helpful - Gregor Robinson.
