Paul Hogan, 'Crocodile Dundee' Actor Missing $34 Million in Swiss Bank; Tax Advisor Accused: REPORT

Close

Crocodile Dundee actor Paul Hogan is looking for his missing $34 million and his one-time tax advisor who he is accusing of taking it.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Phillip Egglishaw, who is known for creating tax havens for his clients, may have absconded with Hogan's money.

The account, known as the Carthage Trust, was held in Corner Bank in Lausanne. According to Yahoo!, Egglishaw has not furnished any statements from the account, known as the Carthage Account, in the last year.

Although Hogan settled a dispute with the Australian Tax Office last year, there is a warrant out for Egglishaw in relation to tax evasion.

The knife wielding, crocodile wrangler has now taken legal action in the US to recover his money.

According to an email published by the Sydney Morning Herald, Hogan's representative Schuyler ''Sky'' Moore emailed Egglishaw's Geneva lawyer, Paul Gully-Hart, last October stating, "The Carthage Trust's beneficiary [Hogan] is not going to stand idly by in the face of this theft, and he is going to take every step possible in every country possible to hold Egglishaw, Strachans, you, and your firm liable and brought to account.''

Craig Emanuel, Hogan's lawyer, told Yahoo! that he was unable to make a comment "for a variety of ethical reasons."
