Ex-Detective Sergeant Christopher Taylor First Debt Recovery Ltd Advance Fee Fraud & Money Laundering Wakefield, Other
13th of Apr, 2013 by User788208
Ex-Detective Sergeant Christopher Taylor is a retired fraud-squad Police Officer from Wakefield, UK. Taylor is currently on trial at Ipswich Crown Court (along with four other defendants) for money laundering and conspiracy to defraud. This follows a three year investigation by Suffolk Trading Standards, codenamed вЂ?Operation Troy’. The ringleader of the fraud, Toni Muldoon (a notorious timeshare conman) has already pleaded guilty. Taylor is accused of working with Muldoon in two advance fee frauds - one involving five bogus debt elimination companies and the other, 28 bogus escort agencies. There are over 14,000 victims. It is alleged that Taylor used his company, First Debt Recovery Ltd, to launder money for these two frauds operated by Muldoon, between October 2007 and September 2010. What the trial is apparently not considering is any advance fee fraud perpetrated directly by Taylor in his Debt Collection business, First Debt Recovery. Taylor charged his clients an upfront fee to collect debts but, according to the following reviews, failed to do so... Taylor was also instrumental in setting up two other debt collection agencies in Wakefield, just 200m from First Debt Recovery. The premises being leased to Taylor but he was not a director of either company: Baker and Bond Ltd and Baker and Bond (UK) Ltd. After a falling out with those involved in the two Baker and Bond companies, Taylor, along with another man (Ian Burrow) were seen with a team of вЂ?heavy men’ breaking into the premises of Baker and Bond. Taylor was heard (by the owner of the premises) to announce that Ian Burrow would be running the Baker and Bond operations from now on. It is known that Burrow was also instrumental in setting up the websites for the two Baker and Bond companies. Baker and Bond Ltd and Baker and Bond (UK) Ltd operated as if they were a single company, charging upfront fees of Ј595 to collect debts. Both were closed down by the High Court in January 2013... Ian Burrow also created his own debt collection agency (Goldman Vicenti) also based in the centre of Wakefield, just a stones throw from the three debt collection agencies set up by Taylor. Ian Burrow continued with the advance fee debt collection fraud by charging customers an upfront fee of Ј595 (the same as the upfront fees that the Baker and Bond companies charged, when he was running them for Taylor) Goldman Vicenti was also wound up by the High Court in January 2013 for charging upfront fees, failing to pass on collected debts to clients and for perpetrating a VAT fraud... Although the Insolvency Service investigated the two Baker and Bond companies as well as Goldman Vicenti, getting all three wound up, they seemingly failed to recognise that Ian Burrow was linked to all three. But the following website did note similarities... Suffolk Trading Standards also failed to find any link between Ian Burrow and Taylor; when I spoke to the head of their investigations team, shortly before the trial started, he told me that he had never heard of Burrow or Goldman Vicenti. Had Suffolk Trading Standards established the link between Taylor and Burrow they may have also noted that the two advance fee frauds (debt elimination and escort agencies run by Muldoon) match very nicely with Taylor’s now defunct business as a debt collector and Burrow’s former business, running illicit escort agencies... Meanwhile, Burrow still has two active debt collections agencies called Relentless Debt Recovery Ltd and Goldman Vicenti Recovery Ltd.
