Money laundering gang jailed over £1.2m IT fraud

July 5, 2024

"The fraud targeted elderly and vulnerable people, tricking them into paying out thousands of pounds each to fix non-existent IT problems....The court heard victims were told the fictitious problems could be fixed for a fee and were persuaded into allowing remote access to their computers....The money was then filtered through a series of companies set up by the gang before being transferred to India...Lord Michael Bichard, Chair of National Trading Standards, said the gang had - no qualms about enriching themselves off the back of vulnerable and elderly victims”.
