Man wanted in connection with carbon credit fraud in Grays

DETECTIVES in Grays are appealing for the public’s help to identify this man who they would like to speak to in connection with a fraud investigation.

Essex Police are investigating in a case where a company calling itself Hamilton Carter Limited, is alleged to have cold called members of the public and tried to dupe them into making investments in gold or carbon credits. Once the victims had agreed to make the investments, they were directed to make payments to a number of bank accounts. The victims then discovered they had been tricked.

Essex Police have been contacted so far by seven people who have all lost thousands of pounds.

Investigating Officer Dc Andrew Marr said: "The suspects have conned the victims into investing large amounts of money into worthless carbon credits. I am currently dealing with seven victims who live all over the country and are all aged between 63 and 85. They invested thousands of pounds, some of them losing their life savings. I urgently want to try and trace this man and would urge anyone who recognises him to contact me.”

Anybody that can help is asked to contact Dc Marr at Grays CID on Essex Police 101. People can also give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
