South Wales Police arrested four people this week for their apparent involvement in a mobile phone insurance scam worth between £4 and £5 million over a 5-year period. Three men aged 43, 29 and 28, and a woman aged 25 are now in custody at Swansea Police station.
Investigations started two years ago and have uncovered over 300 victims so far. Acting Detective Inspector Barrie McGregor of the Economic Crime Unit said "This operation and the arrests are a significant part of our ongoing drive to actively target individuals who we believe are causing the greatest harm to our communities. The public can be reassured that we will do everything in our power to target and investigate those individuals involved in organised crime. We will utilise our expertise to secure their convictions and strip them of any assets they have gained through their involvement in crime."
