A Surrey company director has been jailed for laundering cash after an elderly couple were fleeced out of nearly £1million in a double scam.
It follows an investigation by Buckinghamshire and Surrey Trading Standards* working with Thames Valley Police.
Richard Walsh, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Localities and Community Wellbeing, said: “Booker has been brought to justice thanks to a painstaking investigation across two counties. Trading standards officers will now focus on recovering as much as they can of the funds laundered by Booker and returning them to this elderly couple who have been devastated by the loss of their life savings.”
