I should’t be having to post about this court case in Spain.
This court case would have been avoided if those responsible for the victimisation of savers had been summarily dealt with by the criminal courts many years ago.
It should not have been necessary for this case to have been brought by Angie Brooks and it should not need the Daily Mail, Andy Agethangelou and the Transparency Task Force or indeed this blog to bring this issue to light.
This matter should have been pursued and publicised by the UK authorities , working with European counter-parties.
Instead, the notorious perpetrators of repeated scams are being prosecuted in Spain.
What you can do to change things
As Andy’s post points out, the Transparency Task Force continues to shed light on these issues and if you want to get involved in the next event on scams , it is on April 23rd and you can book your place by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
But most especially you , as readers of this blog, can help stop scams by teaching yourselves and others about how scamming works and how to prevent it.
Martin Lewis’ last program on scams was particularly good, he speaks as someone who has done much to clean up Facebook and we owe him a debt of thanks, you can watch him via this link.
I shouldn’t have to be writing this….
But for the ladies and gents in the picture (most of whom I’ve met), these warnings have come too late. They are the victims of scams and they at last have a day in court.
It’s the wrong day and the wrong court but with the help of Angie, Tom and Andy, they may get some justice.
Not much credit goes to the UK authorities for this.
