Pump Court

Alex Stein, leading David Patience, prosecute pension scammers in £13 million fraud

Cases 26 Apr 22

On Friday 22 April 2022, Alan Barratt and Susan Dalton were sentenced at Southwark Crown Court to 5 years 7 months and 4 years 8 months respectively, for their part in a criminal enterprise operating from Spain, which persuaded 245 members of legitimate UK occupational pension schemes to transfer their pension savings, worth about £55,000 on average and with a total value of £13.7 million, into scam pension schemes under the control of the defendants. 

Alex and David were instructed by The Pensions Regulator (TPR) and the case involved the first ever application by TPR for European Arrest Warrants, enabling Barratt to be extradited back from Spain to face justice in the UK.
