Tag: Allgemeinessigi.hiss @ 08:35

FRAUD squad police in London arrested six people overnight over an alleged $5m scam in which investors were told they were buying specialist Australian wines that did not exist. Those targeted were told that Australian wines could be „laid down“ and would increase in value with age, the Metropolitan Police said.

Along with two earlier arrests those detained on suspicion of money laundering included two women aged 40 and 32 and men aged 30, 34, 40 and 65. “This kind of investment fraud is becoming far too common. People from all economic backgrounds are being targeted to invest in what appears to be a sound financial opportunity.,“ said Detective Chief Inspector Robin Cross, from the Economic and Specialist Crime Command said.
