Fraud inquiry after Essex firm collapses

By Julian Sturdy BBC East

Carol Ingram Carol Ingram, from Hertfordshire, said her family has lost £2,000

Investigators have begun a fraud inquiry after the collapse of company which helped British soldiers serving abroad to get on the property ladder in the UK.

More than 300 troops, including some fighting in Afghanistan, have each lost thousands of pounds after Blue Forces Property Ltd went into liquidation with debts of more than £1m.

Just looking through a copy of 'EQPD' that I have to hand. A double page spread about buying villas in Cyprus, next page, apartments in Darlington or Portsmouth. ;)

I'm in Darlington and one of my colleagues rents his place from a serving soldier. I wonder......?

I lived in one of those when I was working on a fixed-term contract (post-doc research at Sheffield University).

It was a lovely cottage on the edge of the moors (Peak District), but I had to get out three months before the end of my contract, due to my landlord returning from serving somewhere abroad. Finding somewhere to live for three months was a nightmare :ph34r:

[edit to add] this was about 20 years ago.
