After receiving a call from ‘Gerry at the bank’ to tell them there had been fraudulent transactions on their account, Donald and Margaret, who both have dementia, handed over their confidential details. Unknown to them, Gerry was actually Syed Bukhari, a conman who used the details to gain access to the couple’s life savings. He spent the money on luxury holidays, and used £10,000 for a hair transplant. He even sold the couple’s home.
After Syed was finally jailed for eight years last week, we’re joined by Mark Williams-Thomas, alongside Donald’s son Graeme to explain why his dad and stepmum are still fighting to reclaim their home.
