Country Confidential

Two Arrested for Fraud Over $900k Young Country Singer Scam

Two people have been charges after allegedly conducting a fraudulent scheme on the Sunshine Coast in 2016 with Australian country artists Alys Ffion getting mixed up in the alleged scam.

Police allege the pair "dishonestly obtained around $900,000 to finance the career of a young Australian singer based in Nashville", without her knowledge.

The accused are alleged to be known associates of 23 year old Ffion, but are not related. 

Six people have provided information to police, which led to the arrest of Aaron Parsons and Tanya Pluckhahn on Monday (December 2).

They would allegedly approach individuals via email to seek investment into the singer's career in return for regular payments based on her success.

It appears that Ffion - who has since moved from Nashville back to the Sunshine Coast - has gone quiet on social media, with her instagram account going private and not posting to Facebook or Twitter since last November. 

The musician is expected to be a witness in the police case and investigators believe more people have been targeted by the group and are urging them to come forward to police.

The best way to support an artist is by buying their music, streaming their songs and going to their shows.
