How Melissa Caddick’s husband embarked on an extraordinary LinkedIn and poster campaign against the investigators who exposed his wife as Australia’s most infamous fraudster
- Anthony Koletti continues war against ASIC giving it a one-star review on Google
- Shared pic on LinkedIn of sign taped to regular’s office: ‘ASIC = womanslaughter’
- Koletti has never been able to accept his wife, Melissa Caddick, stole millions
- Anthony Koletti was hit with an AVO on behalf of ASIC investigator, Isabella Allen
- The application was dropped this week before it was due in court on Friday
The heartbroken husband of missing conwoman, Melissa Caddick, has used LinkedIn to unleash a bizarre campaign of terror against the corporate regulator – which he blames for his wife’s presumed death.
Anthony Koletti, 40, has been at war with ASIC since Caddick disappeared from their $15 million home at Dover Heights, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, in November 2020 – the day after investigators raided the property.
Despite insurmountable evidence against her, the one-time DJ has never been able to accept that his wife stole $23 million from close friends and family while posing as a financial advisor.
He falsely believes ASIC invented the claims because they had some sort of vendetta against his wife, and gave the organisation a one-star Google review – which he then shared on LinkedIn.
Koletti also used LinkedIn to share a photo of a homemade sign he taped outside the regulator’s office on the anniversary of Caddick’s disappearance, which read, ‘ASIC = womanslaughter’.

He gave ASIC a one-star Google review (pictured), which has since been deleted. ‘ASIC negligence caused the death of my wife,’ he wrote
In the now-deleted Google review, Koletti wrote in February: ‘ASIC negligence caused the death of my wife.’
‘If they can get away with manslaughter they are clearly above the law.
‘My wife was dehumanised by ASIC then she died.’
He also used the social media platform to falsely accuse the corporate watchdog of being ‘white collar crooks’ who ’caused the death of my wife’.
‘Put an end to “Pre emptive Slaughter”,’ another post read. ‘Preemptive slaughter’ is a term normally associated killing livestock that risk infecting other animals with fatal illnesses, such as bird flu or foot-and-mouth diseased.
Other posts in his tirade, which all appear to have been posted in January and February this year, include baseless claims that ASIC are a ‘bunch of cowards that kill your wife and take no responsibility for it’.
‘Corrupt and overpowered above the law pansies.’

He continually blames the corporate regular for the death of his wife, while also confusingly referring to it as ‘manslaughter’, ‘womanslaughter’ or, at times, ‘womenslaughter’.
Manslaughter occurs when someone inadvertently dies as a result of another’s actions – where there was no malice intent.
Koletti’s LinkedIn explosion occurred at around the time Isabella Allen – the woman at the helm of the Caddick investigation – filed an AVO against him after he released an album where he essentially accused ASIC of inventing the claims against his wife.
Legal documents filed in February alleged Koletti sent texts to Allen, trolled her on social media and was involved in other behaviours deemed ‘threatening’ including making several dis tracks that mentioned her and ASIC directly.
However, the AVO application was withdrawn this week before it was up for mention in court on Friday – leaving the unemployed hairdresser free to continue new career as a freelance music producer.

He claimed the AVO was ‘an attempt to defame my character’ and impeded on his right to lyrical free speech.
In one bizarre tune, the former hairdresser called Allen ‘ugly’, compared her to a snake and a rat, and launched a personal attack about her ‘government job’.
‘You can’t hide behind your government job forever,’ he chimes in one song on the album, Raid.
‘Might get me a snake or a and call it Isabella. I’ll buy the ugliest thing I can find.’
He accused Allen and her colleagues of ‘laughing at me’ during a formal interview, and said she accused him of threatening her while he tried to obtain government assistance for Caddick’s son.
In May, he released a new single called ‘Liar Liars’ – a spoken-word piece accompanied by a synth beat, during which he takes aim at media organisations, radio hosts, liquidators, and ASIC.

Caddick was wanted by police after she skipped town in November 2020 with $23million of her clients’ life-savings, until she was declared dead four months later when her decaying foot drifted ashore 400km south of her home in Sydney.
ASIC has been trying to recover some of the live savings her 72 clients poured into the scam, which funded her lavish lifestyle.
Mr Koletti was booted from Caddick’s $6.2million Dover Heights mansion in May as liquidators seek to sell the home to recoup some of her victims’ stolen funds.
Liquidators are in the process of preparing the ritzy Wallangra Road property, which has skyrocketed to around $15million in value since Caddick’s 2014 purchase, to put up for sale in a private auction.
An inquest into Caddick’s disappearance and suspected death will be held in September.
