The Basildon, Canvey and Southend Echo reports that a 24-year-old bank worker took part in a “sophisticated fraud” which saw scammers steal millions of pounds from rich customers using a string of impersonators.

One victim lost more than £750,000 after an unknown man used a fake driving licence in his name to set up two transfers over three days.
