Cobble Hill woman in court for alleged investment fraud

Investors seek justice for more than $440,000 of unrecoverable funds drained from their accounts

A Cobble Hill woman was in court Wednesday to face charges of defrauding investors of more than half-a-million dollars.

Barbara Giroux, 48, worked at the now-defunct Michaels Wealth Management where it is alleged she drained investor accounts of more than $441,000 over a five-year period.

Det. Bill Trudeau said in a statement that Victoria police and the Insurance Council of British Columbia were unable to recover the missing funds.

Giroux’s next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 2.
