Victim Support responds to the Bank of Terror fraud gang sentencing.
Mark Castle, Chief Executive of the independent charity Victim Support, said:
“This was a sophisticated scam targeting some of the most vulnerable people in our communities; its impact has been devastating to the victims and their families.
“We support thousands of fraud victims every year and what is most important is that they don’t feel alone, to blame or ashamed about what’s happened – it isn’t their fault and support is available.
“Fraud isn’t just about money stolen, the psychological harm caused, particularly to vulnerable victims as in this case, can be crushing and long lasting.”
