In February 2018, we posted an article about the jail sentence from the Stafford Crown Court against a gang of Timeshare fraudsters.
“It was a calculated and cynical fraud and was carefully planned to ensnare the victims without them becoming suspicious,” said Judge Gosling
You can read this article still on the following link:
The news has now reached the newspapers that Ringleader of this timeshare scam gang which conned over 400 victims, has been ordered to pay back £85k
Brian Carr is behind bars for being the ringleader of the gang, but will have to pay back over £80,000 under Proceeds of Crime proceedings
Brian Carr, 31, is estimated to have made £829,319 from his scam.
The fraudster shamefully targeted the elderly and those in poor health.
To facilitate the frauds, the group set up more than 10 limited companies (both in the UK and abroad), with offices in the West Midlands, staff, bank accounts, and the means to process card payments.
The total value of the funds fraudulently obtained by the group is more than £875,000, made up of payments from around 470 victims.
All outstanding benefit from criminal conduct is a lifetime debt owed until such time as it is fully repaid.
