The husband of multi-millionaire conwoman Melissa Caddick has denied she rorted her clients and ripped on their friends and family, despite the overwhelming evidence.    

Anthony Koletti, 39, insists his wife is not a 'cold-hearted fraudster' but instead a victim of a rouge investigation by Australia's financial watchdog - Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

The rollerblading hairdresser in a bombshell interview on 7News Spotlight said his wife 'no reason to steal' because she 'had everything'.

Caddick, 49, stole millions from the life-savings of family and friends in a brazen Ponzi scheme, taking the funds and spending it on herself instead of investing it for them as she had promised.

As an ASIC investigation closed in on her $30million scam, she left her luxury home in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs for a dawn run on November 12 last year and then vanished.

Her disappearance sparked a massive manhunt until her rotting foot drifted ashore in February on Bournda Beach, 400km south of Sydney, and she was declared dead.

But mystery still surrounds her final movements and her fate.

Some have put forward wild theories she may have had her foot amputated to fake her own death before fleeing overseas.

Others have debated whether she committed suicide or was killed.

Mr Koletti - who Daily Mail Australia understands will reportedly be paid $50,000 for the TV special - has dismissed the suicide theory, despite ASIC's net closing in on her and her criminal operation.

'I don't believe that she committed suicide,' he insists. 'Her love for her son, myself, her family, friends was far beyond that.

'She was so happy, she loved (her son) and I. I don't believe that's what she did.'

But 7News interviewer Michael Usher has cast doubt on the husband's account of her final hours.

'He says he doesn't know what happened to the money, that he wasn't aware,' revealed Mr Usher on Seven's Sunrise show. 

'And there are certain parts of the timeline - in particular, the 24 hours up until her going missing - that I say to him, 'I don't quite believe your version of events'.

'However he opens himself up to everything, the questions are not easy at all. The interviews are quite uncomfortable.

'But he answers them all to the best of his ability.'

Caddick's 'penniless' husband has been slammed for doing the TV special by one of his wife's victims who said he is only motivated by money. 

The former friend of the couple, who lost tens of thousands in Caddick's bogus investment business, told Daily Mail Australia that just like his wife, Mr Koletti is largely motivated by money.
