A Melbourne couple who've invested everything in Fiji, are warning others not to.
Alwyn and Robert Nink lost their jobs six years ago and put their savings into a new life in Savusavu but are now on the verge of losing everything.
The Ninks spent four years researching regulations and the market before moving to Fiji a year ago to start their new business venture.
But despite due diligence their holiday villa rental is faltering before opening.
They used their redundancy pay-outs and retirement savings, and sold their Melbourne house to up-sticks and get Pure Shores Resort underway.
Alwyn Nink says corruption and dishonesty from their builder, freight agent and officials have been rife in almost every facet of their dealings.
