Share conman pays up

David Tweed, who bought shares from retired people for half their value has been ordered by a Victorian court to pay legal fees of $58,000. Tweed has been told to pay his lawyer Jamie Griffen, who wrote letters threatening legal action to Tweed's victims who tried to pull out of the arrangements. Tweed told the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal that he had agreed to pay Mr Griffen only if his letters worked.
