Ghost broker jailed for two years


A car rental firm owner has been jailed for two years after he made £65,000 selling invalid car insurance to motorists across the UK.

Jeffrey Derek King had earlier been found guilty of acting as a ‘ghost broker' following an investigation by the City of London Police's Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (Ifed).

The 30-year-old pretended to be an insurance broker and advertised cheap and temporary car insurance on Gumtree under the name Richard Dean.
