Conman admits to selling false policies


Danyal Buckharee, 42, admitted to the Old Bailey that he had set up two websites, Aston Midshires Insurance and First Car Direct Insurance, advertising cheap car insurance.

Between May 2011 and April 2012, 600 drivers were duped into buying worthless policies, making Mr Buckharee over £550,000.

He sent his victims fake insurance certificates meaning some drivers only realised they had been conned when they had their car seized by police for having no insurance.
