Rogue estate agent forced to cash in pension to pay back fraud victims

These are Ashby’s Estate Agents (Devon) Limited, Ashby’s Estate Agents Limited and Baker Lewis Ltd.He had originally told those giving him the money that he wanted to use the cash to buy out a business partner and solve a cashflow bottleneck, but also used classic ‘rob Peter to pay Paul’ tactics to try and keep his business going.This included pocketing one couples’ £22,500 pre-contract deposit for a property purchase, Devon and Somerset Trading Standards Service found during its investigation into Baker.Rogue estate agentAfter a court case in 2016 during which he was convicted of stealing £123,927 from nine people – and received a 20 month sentence suspended for two years and was ordered to complete 160 hours’ community service – Baker was returned to court on Friday after it emerged that the total amount of money he obtained through fraud was actually £400,000.During this court appearance at Exeter Crown Court under the Proceeds of Crime Act, Baker was ordered to cash in his only significant asset – his pension – and hand over its £6,541 value to be distributed among the victims, who are likely now to only receive half the money he stole from them.Proceeds of Crime Act Rogue estate agent Ashby’s Estate Agents Devon Bovey Tracey Russell Baker South Dartmoore Devon and Somerset Trading Standards Service Exeter Crown Court February 14, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

65% of online home hunters have no intention of transacting, claims lettings agency

first_imgEstate agents who suspect that a large proportion of online house hunters are tyre kickers and property porn addicts have been proved right by research into property portal habits.Online lettings agency Mashroom, which also owns the eMoov brand, says that just over half of all Brits have admitted to using property portals as a form of entertainment.Among those canvassed by OnePoll, 65% said they regularly browse with no intention of buying or renting, 16% said they considered their habit to be an addition while a third said they kept their digital house viewing habits hidden from their partner.Worryingly for the portals, who often claim huge traffic for their sites as proof of success, a third of Brits say they consider looking at homes to be their hobby while a third said their habit was kicked off by watching Channel 4 programme Location, Location, Location starring Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer.Mashroom has launched an ad campaign that build on this ‘property porn’ theme and is meant to ape the M&S food ads, making a series of puns that might have even the Carry On script writers groaning.This includes (in reference to ‘hot’ Aga cookers): ‘You wouldn’t stay wet for long with that in the kitchen’ and ‘lovely knob’.Stepan Dobrovolskiy, CEO of Mashroom, says: “Long gone are the days of having to stand at estate agent windows or looking at the property sections of newspapers and magazines.“Tenants can scan homes at the touch of button at a time which suits them and who are we to judge when and where that perfect time is.”M&S property porn stepan dobrovolskiy Mashroom Emoov November 19, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Exeter blown apart by Hall in point-a-minute thriller

first_imgExeter 15Teddy Hall 76Teddy Hall continued their assault on the college rugby league with an embarrassingly one-sided victory over Exeter. The forwards set up a solid football platform for a backs’ performance that was genuinely inventive and penetrating.The pattern of the game was established right from the outset, as Hall went 12-0 ahead within 10 minutes of kick-off. Fly-half Rob Yates masterminded the early onslaught, scoring the opening try and creating the second with a defence-splitting dummy and an intelligent pass inside to an onrushing team-mate. It was clear from this opening passage of play how dangerous Hall were, combining individual skill with teamwork and leadership throughout the side. The attacking play was characterised by fluent passing moves sweeping the pitch from flank to flank and encompassing every member of the team.Hall’s tries were scored from an impressive range of situations. The vast majority of the points haul came from the fast, flamboyant passages of play, which led to try after try. However, midway through the first half the pack took their chance to shine, setting up a maul from a line out and driving the Exeter defence fifteen yards back to their own try-line for Andy Godfrey to peel off and tumble over the line to make the score 24-3.This was followed by the one costly mistake made by Hall during the game. A period of excellent defensive play appeared to have removed the danger of Exeter scoring, but a dropped catch by fullback Graham Robertson in his own dead-ball zone allowed Exeter to simply fall onto the ball and claim their first of two tries. However, Luka Travlos almost immediately intercepted an Exeter pass to send Hall in 31-8 ahead at half-time.The second half followed the same pattern. Credit should go to Exeter for holding their heads high throughout. However, the ruthlessness of Hall and the ability to maintain their devastatingly fluid style of play throughout saw the score soar to 71-8. Indeed the first pressure which Exeter enjoyed after half time did not come until the last 10 minutes and they were rewarded with a consolation try when Greg Johnson drove over the line. However, there was still time for Hall to issue a reminder that this game was all about their performance, scoring a final try with minutes remaining when they rounded off a move which saw the ball sweep from the right touchline to the left in a matter of seconds. The reminder was not at all necessary: they gave another expression of their desire to reclaim the title which for so long they have been associated with. Meanwhile, this second heavy loss for Exeter will leave them hoping that they can turn things around sooner rather than later.ARCHIVE: 2nd week MT 2005last_img read more

News story: Public Health England warns travellers of rabies risk

first_imgFor more information on the risk of rabies in different countries, see the country information pages on the National Travel Health Network and Centre’s (NaTHNaC’s) website, TravelHealthPro.For more general information about rabies, see the NHS website.For more information about the risk of rabies in bats in the UK see PHE’s information for individuals who have been bitten by bats.About rabiesRabies is a very serious viral infection that affects the brain and central nervous system. It is called a ‘zoonotic’ infection, which means it passes from animals to humans. The virus is transmitted to humans through animal bites, and can’t spread through physical contact or airborne means in the way that other zoonotic infections can.This means it does not spread from human to human. Despite around 59,000 cases of rabies globally each year, there has yet to be a single confirmed case of human-to-human transmission, with the rare exception of when tissue or organs from a person who has died from rabies have been transplanted into another person.Initial symptoms can include anxiety, headaches and fever. As the disease progresses, there may be hallucinations and respiratory failure. Spasms of the muscles used for swallowing make it difficult for the patient to drink. The incubation period between being infected and showing symptoms is between 3 and 12 weeks, depending on the site of the initial infection.Once symptoms have developed, rabies is almost always fatal.The UK has been rabies-free since the beginning of the 20th century, with the exception of rabies-like viruses in some wild bat species. The last recorded rabies case in the UK was in 2012. In that instance, the individual was bitten by a dog in South Asia. This is an important reminder of the precautions people should take when travelling to countries where rabies is present. If you are bitten, scratched or licked by an animal you must wash the wound or site of exposure with plenty of soap and water and seek medical advice without delay. There is no risk to the wider public in relation to this case but, as a precautionary measure, health workers and close contacts are being assessed and offered vaccination when necessary. This reminder comes after a UK resident sadly died after becoming infected with rabies following a cat bite during a visit to Morocco. There is no risk to the wider public in relation to this case but, as a precautionary measure, health workers and close contacts are being assessed and offered vaccination when necessary.Rabies is passed on through injuries such as bites and scratches from an infected animal. There are no documented instances of direct human to human transmission.Rabies does not circulate in either wild or domestic animals in the UK, although some species of bats can carry a rabies-like virus. Human rabies is extremely rare in the UK. No human cases of rabies acquired in the UK from animals other than bats have been reported since 1902. A single case of human rabies acquired from a bat was reported in 2002 in Scotland; this individual had sustained a number of bat bites. 5 cases of human rabies associated with animal exposures abroad occurred between 2000 and 2017.Rabies is common in other parts of the world, especially in Asia and Africa. All travellers to rabies affected countries should avoid contact with dogs, cats and other animals wherever possible, and seek advice about the need for rabies vaccine prior to travel.Anyone who has been bitten, scratched, or licked by an animal in a country with rabies, or has had direct contact with a bat in this country, should take immediate action by washing the wound or site of exposure with plenty of soap and water. Local medical advice should be sought without delay, even in those who have been previously vaccinated.When given promptly after an exposure, a course of rabies vaccine is extremely effective at preventing the disease. If such an exposure occurs abroad, the traveller should also consult their doctor on return, so that the course of rabies treatment can be completed. If travellers have not sought medical advice abroad, they should contact their doctor promptly upon return for assessment.Dr Mary Ramsay, Head of Immunisations at PHE said:last_img read more


ANALYSIS – FARC Leader’s Death Could Speed Peace Talks in Colombia

first_imgBy Dialogo September 27, 2010 This democracy that the world and its political parties have, is something that any group of people without morals has, they assist and nurture this type of sickness found in all societies. The gangs and the misery Colombia has is not new, and the politicians offer this in their political platform but then they do nothing. I want and support democracy, because it allows us to go on “living in liberty” with the citizens who live with politicians who are mentally ill not only in Colombia, Mexico, U.S.A, and from there on down to the east and west of Patagonia, I don’t know what needs to happen, I don’t have the one true answer but since I reached the age of reason during my 71 years, I don’t see the way nor will I see a change, thank you for allowing me to make this statement. The death of the Colombian FARC guerrilla group’s military commander during Operation Sodom was a blow to the heart of the rebel group that could accelerate its decline and force its leaders to negotiate for peace with the government. Jorge Briceño Suárez, better known as “El Mono Jojoy,” fell fighting soldiers following a bombardment of his camp that began early in the morning on 22 September, in a jungle area near the municipality of La Macarena, in southeastern Colombia. While combat was underway, on the same day, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) announced in a statement their willingness to negotiate for peace with President Juan Manuel Santos, but without submitting to any conditions. However, the president, a former defense minister in the previous administration, which maintained a hard line against the guerrilla group with the support of the United States, is demanding a suspension of hostilities before sitting down to the table. Now, the death of the veteran Briceño Suárez, a fifty-nine-year-old guerrilla fighter, could increase the pressure on the rebel group, which is experiencing the worst crisis in its history, according to specialists. “For this organization, El Mono Jojoy was the equivalent of the commandant of the Army,” said former peace commissioner Víctor G. Ricardo. “It’s a blow to their military strategy; it’s a blow to the organization’s morale,” he added. A decade ago, Ricardo was one of the participants in the negotiations launched in 1999 by then-president Andrés Pastrana, when the rebel group was much more powerful. The talks collapsed in 2002. With the recent death of the guerrilla leader, considered a hardliner within the FARC, a light at the end of the tunnel is beginning to become visible. “With that military strength having been diminished, dialogue has to be near,” said Guillermo González, a former defense minister and current governor of the department of El Cauca. A SINGLE PATH Santos made peace negotiations with the rebels conditional on their releasing those they have kidnapped, suspending attacks, and announcing their readiness to lay down their arms. “Unacceptable, arrogant, and triumphalist” was the rebel group’s characterization of Santos’s demands. Meanwhile, the president promised to maintain the offensive against the FARC begun by his predecessor Alvaro Uribe. For former president Pastrana, the message that the administration has sent to the FARC’s commander-in-chief, Alfonso Cano, is that he could suffer the same fate as “El Mono Jojoy” and that the rebels should understand that the only path is that of peace. “They (the FARC) have no possibility of recovering their military strength; it’s an absolutely irreversible process of decline in both the political and the military spheres,” analyst Alfredo Rangel said for his part. “It’s to be expected that the psychological impact and the demoralization caused by this blow will lead dozens or hundreds of members of the guerrilla group to desert,” he explained. Despite everything, the guerrilla group still has the ability to cause headaches for Santos with high-impact attacks in jungle regions and even in urban centers. In fact, in recent weeks the FARC launched attacks in which more than thirty soldiers and police personnel died, leading the armed forces to redouble their offensive. “The deaths of police and military personnel, the deaths of guerrillas, the dramas that the inhabitants of the countryside experience in the midst of armed operations should lead us to construct a space for dialogue,” said Sen. Piedad Córdoba of the Liberal Party. Thousands of combatants have abandoned the ranks of the FARC since Uribe began military operations, reducing the rebel forces to 8,000 men from the 17,000 they once had, according to calculations by security sources.last_img read more
