Terence Goldberg attends 'meeting of creditors' at offices of liquidator
Terence Goldberg attends ‘meeting of creditors’ at the offices of Jones Partners, despite having been paid in full some 17 months previously, and is also the only attendee at this meeting (rendering the said meeting void). In this meeting Terence Goldberg provides financial advantage to the liquidator, and discusses the creation of a Trust and also a new entity by the name of The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Incorporated.

Creation of sham entity called The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Incorporated
Turner Freeman Lawyers sets up entity to act as a receptacle to receive fraudulently obtained funds, with such entity headed by Jon Lindsay, long-time acquaintance of Terence Goldberg, with such entity also being registered to the given home address of Jon Lindsay, at 3/349 Bourke Street, Darlinghurst. This entity has no actual purpose or function and exists in name only.
The said sham entity was also set up with 19 supposed financial members, however, only one of those membership details actually tallies with the electoral roll, giving the appearance of the fabrication of names and addresses.
16 December 2016
Creation of The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Foundation Trust
Trust set up by Terence Goldberg with the assistance of Perpetual Trustee Company Limited, with its sole object being to provide funds to the abovementioned sham entity. The surplus funds as owned by the original entity were received by this Trust after being held for some years by Mr Michael Jones, the liquidator.
Between 30 June 2016 and 1 July 2017
Moneys passed to sham entity from Trust
As per the website of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission and the financial statement of the abovementioned Trust, such Trust received an amount in the region of $985,447.00, with an amount of $492,307.00 simultaneously exiting same.
The sum of $985,447.00 exceeds by far the assets left over from the winding up of the original association. Where did it come from, and more importantly, where did the $492,307.00 go?
The Financial Information Statement for 2017 for The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Foundation Trust can be found here on the website of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
12 December 2017
False declaration made to ASIC
Michael Jones, liquidator, declares to ASIC that he transferred $500,000.00 into the Trust that he and Terence Goldberg created. That Trust, in fact, received in the region of $985,447.00 (as above), therefore creating a rather large disparity, with an excess of funds of unknown origin having entered the said Trust.
A copy of that declaration can be downloaded here.
Where has the money gone?
As at June 2019, both entities have provided financial statements to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Foundation Trust holds $517,980.00 in its account (as here), however, the sham and non-operating entity known as The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Incorporated holds the paltry sum of $4,700.00 in its account (as here).
Where has the almost half million gone? Quite simply, a tale of fraud and money laundering.

ACNC Financial Report for 2018/2019
This morning the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission published its financial report for The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Congregation Foundation Trust for the financial period of 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019, and states that the sum of $522,215.00 now resides in the trust, having had $19,571.00 in ‘expenses’ over the previous 12 months.
Details of the above can be found here.

ACNC Financial Report for 2019/2020
Today, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission published the financial report for The Congregation of the Enmore Spiritualist Church Congregation Foundation Trust for the financial period of 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, with such statement advising that the Trust now holds $488,033.00 in assets.
However, last year’s financial statement advised the Trust had $522,215.00 in assets. The Trust had a trade deficit of $78.00 in the last financial year, so the Trust should therefore have the amount of $522,137.00 in its account. Given these assets are liquid, there is no depreciation.
An amount of $34,104.00 has obviously gone astray. Where has it gone? Maybe the Australian Federal Police will find out.

ACNC Financial Report for 2020/2021
And this year more astonishing events take place. As per the website of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, the Trust of Terence Goldberg and Michael Jones’s making now has the sum of $563,646.00 in its account.
This is bizarre on a number of fronts. In last year’s financial report, the Trust is stated as having $488,033.00 in its account, and despite reporting a net deficit of -$1,218.00 for the last financial year, the Trust has managed to increase the amount held in its coffers by $75,613.00.
It must be a magic trick. The accounts for the financial year of 2020/2021 can be found here.
1 February 2023
ACNC Financial Report for 2021/2022

This is a net value increase of $5,055,895.00 in the intervening 12 month period, yet the said trust has a reported revenue of $37,415.00. The ACNC financial report for 2021/2022 can be found here.
Turner Freeman Lawyers. A criminal enterprise.
Documentation corroborating all the above is contained within this website and other public resources.
Also, and while you’re here, you might be interested in the following two letters that we have lifted from fumbart.com, which were sent to the Legal Services Commissioner by a concerned member of the public regarding Terence Goldberg’s unlawful conduct. Very interesting reading indeed.
