Operation Sylphy – Southwark Crown Court

This case relates to a sophisticated online gold bullion investment fraud and money laundering. The online frauds involved the hacking of a substantial number of eBay and email accounts. The Organised crime network obtained information from bank insiders to ascertain which victims had significant sums in their accounts. These vulnerable and sometimes elderly victims were then repeatedly cold called and presented with investment opportunities in gold bullion by pressurised selling.
