AS customers of disgraced Mallorca firm, Premier FX are inundating members of Parliament with complaints, hopefully now strong action will be taken.
After nine shamefully squandered months many of the victims identified by the Olive Press have yet to receive justice or even a whiff of compensation.
A recent damning report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary found police forces in the UK fail to take fraud seriously despite people being ‘more likely to be victims of fraud than any other crime’.
There is a danger in the case of Premier FX that lack of action by Surrey Police and the Financial Conduct Authority could give a ‘green light’ to future fraudsters.
The strong lead taken by victim Pauline Creasey and Charlie Elphicke MP to push for a debate on the scandal is highly commendable and will no doubt win supporters across parliament.
Indeed getting more than a handful of MPs to agree on anything these days is certainly no small feat.
