Fraudsters jailed for British Gas scam

Two businessmen have been jailed after making thousands from selling fake British Gas insurance policies from their offices in South London.


The pair scammed victims under the company name of Feature Me Ltd based in Purely, South London.

The businessmen gave their telesales staff a list of British Gas customers to call, to try to sell to them British Gas Homecare insurance products. The innocent employees believed they were selling genuine insurance policies.

Once a product was 'sold' to victims over the phone the operators would take their payment details, and file their contact details and product they had bought.

Their offices were raided after British Gas investigated a number of complaints. The men were jailed for a total of 33 months and were ordered to pay victims back.
