THREE Hampshire people have appeared in court accused of carrying out a £30 million fraud using fake government websites.

Claire Hall and Peter Hall, from Medstead near Alresford, along with Collette Ferrow from Liss, are alleged to have run websites designed to look as though they were official websites and to have used them to persuade people to hand over money they did not need to for Government services.

The prosecution allege these included websites offering new passports, visas, European health insurance cards, driving licences and car tax discs.

They are also alleged to have misled the public over booking driving tests and MOT tests and the payment of the London congestion charge, payable by every car that travels within central London.
