  • Crime does not pay???

    They say that crime does not pay. Well if rumours are true, it certainly does in this case as the O`Reilly family get what appears to be very lenient sentences. The father Dominic getting 2 years and 4 months in prison and his daughter getting a suspended sentence. At a rumoured million pounds plus per month and with the term served expected to be halved, as is the norm, then 2 million pounds per month is a decent return given that the British prison system will also be giving free board and lodgings for the term... Givvus a job!

    Yes the officers investigating fraud in the UK must be truly inspired to greater efforts, given the gravity of these sentences that our justice has seen fit to mete out to these convicted fraudsters who preyed on the elderly, vulnerable and desperate.

      Dominic O’Reilly and his step daughter Stephanie, who had previously pleaded guilty to offences under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 for their roles in aggressive mis-selling between 2014 and 2017, were ordered to pay back £424,560 for their part in running a ‘leisure club’ scam.
      This was reported yesterday 17th Feb 2017. Given the rumours of the amounts that the scam generated, we can expect the sum above will be paid via out of pocket expenses.
      Meanwhile the, rumoured to be, even bigger scam said to have been perpetrated by the Monster stable of companies is still being investigated by the police.This has been ongoing for 3 years now and there is scant information forthcoming on its progress.

          I am able to respond to this post so quickly as a notification of its existence came via an email to my mobile phone.

          As I understand it the properties and any other goods and chattels (belonging to convicted people which are deemed to have been gained through the frauds for which the above people perpetrated and pleaded guilty to) can be taken and used to compensate victims. So anything and everything they own becomes at risk of being impounded and sold off.
          If that then occurs in this case it will serve as a warning to all the other scammers operating in and around timeshare that should they face prosecution and are found guilty they could lose everything.
