Operation Troy Suffolk Trading Standards
November 3, 2010 4 Comments
Operation Troy is a lengthy international investigation by Suffolk Trading Standards and supported by Suffolk Constabulary. In regards to two advance fee frauds that have netted an estimated £6 million and 15,000 victims have already been identified.
One of the frauds is an employment scam involving escort agencies, which offers the chance of high earnings. The victims are told they are no fees until the first job and that there are clients waiting.
A few days later, they are asked for registration fees between £219-£350 but the victim never hears from the company again.
The other fraud involves a debt elimination company cold calling people and promising to clear their debt. Individuals pay £400-£500 for the service but receive nothing in return.
