MAFS Australia Season 6 contestant Dan Webb is in court charged with allegedly being involved in a multi-million dollar telemarketing scam.

Dan and 10 others allegedly scammed “hundreds of victims” to the tune of 24 million Australian dollars, the prosecution claims.

Some of the other people standing trial alongside Dan are also facing money laundering charges.

The alleged scam was part of a cold-calling scheme. According to New Zealand news site Stuff, there are 500 witnesses available, with 35 expected to stand trial at Brisbane Magistrates’ Court.
