Fraud Squad Cop Jailed Over Mortage Fraud

Recommended Posts

Another day another mortgage fraud story, the difference this time is it involves a detective ironically working in the fraud squad.

Met fraud squad investigator jailed over multi-million pound mortgage scam

A crooked fraud squad officer who masterminded a multi-million pound mortgage sting with the help of his brother and a solicitor's clerk was jailed for nearly six years today.

Det Sgt Charles Overend, 47, a specialist fraud investigator with the Metropolitan Police, built up a buy-to-let empire during the property boom years.

Overend inflated the price of each house he bought and was granted massive loans by mortgage lenders, Southwark Crown Court heard.

Of course had he run a large Scottish Bank that advanced such loans to gain commissions he'd have been left of scot-free and given a £700k PA pension.
