Fraudster Caught and Jailed

Date: 30/03/2010

A diving industry professional from Liverpool in England, Michael Brass, who was found guilty of fraud, has begun his jail term after a period spent on the run. The fraud involved the billing of health trusts around the country for bogus recompression treatments, listed as having been held at a hyperbaric chamber at Plymouth’s Fort Bovisand. Brass helped recruit 37 individuals, each paid up to £200 in return for personal data which was used to claim £6500 a time, totalling nearly £250,000.
