A fraudster who fooled victims by convincing them that they were purchasing dream homes has been sentenced to six years in prison. Barry Leigh was the founder of a firm known as Dream Coastal and Country Homes.
By showing his estate agents a fraudulent bank statement that indicated he had over £980,000, Leigh attempted to prove to Humberts that he was wealthy enough to buy numerous sites. Over the time that the company was in operation, Leigh laundered approximately £626,000, as well as leaving victims in unfortunate circumstances.
