Unravelling

Land banking fraud jailed

Two men have become the first in Britain to be jailed for land banking fraud today after conning elderly and vulnerable people out of £3million. Well, this has been ravaging for years and I can still see thousands land bank ads on rightmove. I am shocked that only one is caught so far. Crime really pays, I suppose.

  • Wait, so it’s a crime to sell something that’s “massively over-priced” or to market it as a “sound investment”? In that case I’d like to report a crime being committed by every property owner in the country.

  • They’re all in it together. Land and property has become a dirty business in Britain – all state sponsored, of course.

  • Again. Land banking is best tackled by ending disincentives for saving in banks.
    – End tax on interest earned on bank accounts.
    – Allow interest rates to rise to a sustainable market level.

    In addition, this may sound counter-intuitive, but end government guarantees for bank deposits. Banks will then, rather than rely on unthinking government backing, be forced to use private sector insurance companies for deposits. Those insurance companies will scrutinize actual risk to deposits, leading banks to take less risks. As a result, they will invest in real, productive businesses rather than ponzi schemes, to ensure that insurance premiums are sensible. Presently they pay a fixed premium to government for deposit protection.
