UK Court Sentences 10 Fraudsters to a Total of 40 Years in Prison
A number of 10 individuals have been sentenced to a total of 40 years by a judge at the Guildford Crown Court after they had convinced several elderly citizens to hand over more than £120,000 ($191,916 or 150122 EUR).
“The sentences that have been handed to these callous individuals have ensured that they are locked up for some time to come,” Detective Chief Inspector Paul Rymarz of the Surrey Police said.
“These offenders prey on the elderly and vulnerable and do not care about the devastating effect their actions can have on their victims' lives. It's not just about the money – which in some cases amounted to the victim's life savings – but it is also the long-term effect it can have on victims' faith in humanity and ability to trust people.”
