A fourth member of the King real estate family has been charged over an alleged multi-million dollar property fraud in which farmers allegedly lost more than $6 million from land sales.
It comes as veteran agent Colin King and his three sons Darren, Michael and Paul King appeared in Perth Magistrate's Court this morning indicating they would defend the allegations against them.
Colin King and sons Paul and Michael were charged earlier this month.
A third son, Darren, also fronted court this morning on charges over the allegedly fraudulent dealing.
The Kings were charged after a complex police investigation into back-to-back sales of farms from Perth's southern outskirts to north of Geraldton.
Colin and Michael King are each facing six fraud charges while Paul King has been charged with four offences and Darren, who lives in Victoria, with three.
All four men appeared in court this morning where they pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The alleged victims sold their properties for below the price that Malaysian investors identified were willing to pay.
In one alleged case, a drought-stricken Greenough farmer sold his property for $1.25 million to a Michael King company in 2008 after signing on to have Colin King Real Estate be a conjunctional agent in the sale.
At the same time, the property was allegedly offered to Malaysian investors for $1.85 million.
Police claim an illegitimate profit of almost $640,000 was made on the deal and Colin King Real Estate received sales commission of $37,500.
It would be alleged the true offers from international investors were not provided to the sellers, police said.
The Kings will reappear in court in February.
