Welcome & introduction


Land Banking Fraud
Insight of a case resulting in five people jailed for a total of 29 years for being part of a £3m land banking fraud which affected more than 300 victims from across the country.

Adrian Jones


Questions to the speakers



Chris Pierce and Clive Myersough investigated Land Banking Plc, Wren & Co and other individuals for land banking fraud.  But is land banking actually illegal?

How do the civil and criminal justice systems interrelate in land banking cases?  What can be restrained and confiscated?  Who can be pursued and what were the challenges?

Adrian Jones was one of hundreds of victims and organised a group response.  How easy did he find it, and what was it like being a victim at his time of life?

Come and hear from the horse’s mouth about challenges of a large scale fraud investigation, the resulting trial and the lessons learned.
