  • Swansea Mafia Jailed

    A group of fraudsters, some with connections to the matrix of notorious Claims Management companies known to many Beagles members as 'The Swansea Mafia' have been convicted and jailed in Swansea Crown Court for running a Sky TV warranties scam after the biggest ever operation mounted by Swansea Trading Standards.

    Among those jailed were Paul De La Mare, one time director of call centre outfit Cellcom who did much of the cold calling for fraudulent up-front fee PPI claims management company Lifestyle Claims. By happy coincidence he was also a director of debt collection firm Money Reunited which collected debts for Redhawk Legal Ltd - the phoenix of Lifestyle Claims.

    All of the above companies were at one time or other linked to the same Princess House business address in Swansea.

    Prosecution evidence of some of the recorded calls made by the gang and described by the judge as ''chilling'' has been released - to listen see further down the South Wales Evening post story here http://www.southwales-eveningpost.co...ail/story.html


    I like your pin shot
    I keep it with your letter
    Done up in blueprint blue
    It sure looks good on you
    And when you smile for the camera
    I know I'll love you better

    Then the shutter falls
    You see it all in 3-D
    It's your favorite foreign movie

        Well I think this calls for a nice front page story detailing all the other shit the MOJ won't do anything about.

              Fabulous thank you xx

              Shame it is for the Sky stuff but like Kate just said, doesn't matter WHY they're inside, they're inside and can't scam anyone else.

              Shame their mates are still free to carry on though

                            I doubt it. You've practically got to commit mass murder to be disqualified as a director, such is the protection offered to directors of limited companies.


                            Incidentally Martin Lewis took some of the this mob to court in a trade mark dispute (they were cold calling saying they were from 'Money Saving Expert') and the judge held that they were ''riding on the coat tails'' of MSE.

                            The judgment makes for interesting reading http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Ch/2011/1627.html

                            Note that the solicitors acting for Client Connection Ltd (AKA Lifestyle Claims) were Ultimate Law (proprietor Daniella Lipszyc) and who were also Client Connection's agents in PPI claims. So no conflict of interest there then.

                              Ages ago I had a call from the clowns who said that were " Money Saving Expert" declined them thank heavens!
                              Reported it to ME, though not really a member the ads annoyed me.
