Most Wanted Caught

by msecadm4921

Four individuals have been arrested after a Most Wanted Fraudsters campaign run by the crime reporting line charity Crimestoppers.

The latest individual to be arrested allegedly submitted a number of fraudulent mortgage applications totalling £5.7 million, whilst working as a financial advisor. Once the mortgages were processed, the individual is accused of transferring the funds into his own accounts.

Crimestoppers’ Chief Executive, Michael Laurie, said: “The response we have received from the public in our search for these serious fraudsters who are responsible for taking £200 million out of our pockets has been tremendous and to have four of them arrested in less than a month is an exceptional result.

"I urge everyone who hasn’t yet visited our Most Wanted website to take a look and contact us anonymously if you have any information on the remaining individuals being sought.

“One by one, all these fraudsters are going to be caught. The best thing they can do is to hand themselves in. There is nowhere to hide.” For more about the wanted visit the Crimestoppers website –
