The assets of a convicted timeshare fraudster and his company are to be seized.
Warwick Crown Court last week heard that Andrew Stephen Harris and his firm Shakespeare Classic Line Ltd had illegally benefitted from more than £1 million through an elaborate timeshare fraud based around people owning a share of luxury yachts moored in Turkey.
Harris had already been jailed for four and a half years back in November 2013 but was now back in the dock to have his assets seized.
Victims will now receive compensation with a share of the money also going to Central Beds as the investigating authority.
If all of the assets are sold for the amount scheduled in court then £86,348.96 will be invested in crime prevention work here.
Proof too, for Harris, that the old saying is true and that crime really doesn't pay.
