He managed to get almost far enough. Sale completed

He was caught trying to withdraw money after the sale using a fake driving licence,

So, he's now got three years to improve his technique and rethink his method.

3 years for a failed attempt sounds harsh. You'd get less than that for some pretty serious crimes.

In the UK, the plebs are sentenced based on the value of the items they tried to steal.

It discourages them about getting ideas about dis-possessing the wealthy.

This rule doesn't apply to anyone who is already wealthy though, only to those who are not.

Rich people/companies stealing from rich people/companies is considered fair game.

Surely he should have earned himself a peerage out of this. Jeffrey Archer and Peter Mandelslime, as fellow fraudsters must have had the right connections.
