Trio charged after fraud investigation
Monday 3rd October, 2011

Three people have been charged following an investigation into allegations of fraud.

Paul Dakin (born 16/06/1992), Michael Doherty (born 01/01/1974) and Ruby Smith (born 13/07/1972), all of Derby Street, Lower Ince, Wigan are charged with fraud and are due before Wigan Magistrates' Court on 3 October 2011.

It follows an investigation into allegations that an 83-year-old Wigan man paid up to 12,000 for work that was never carried out at his address, and that a second 73-year-old man paid up to 3,000 for painting work valued at far less than he paid.

Police are also appealing to anyone who may have been affected by this investigation to come forward and call 0161 872 5050 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
