West Kingsdown Man Jailed for Running Investment Scam Through Tritex Global Limited

West Kingsdown Fraudster Sentenced to Jail for Investment Scam

A man from West Kingsdown has been sentenced to prison for running a fraudulent investment scheme through his company Tritex Global Limited. Alan Skinner, the sole director of the company, tricked four victims into investing a total of £159,000 into a sham fund.

Skinner’s scheme involved convincing his victims to participate in binary option trading, a form of fixed-odds betting that is now banned in the UK. He cold-called his victims and promised them access to dedicated account managers, trading experts, and round-the-clock customer service. He also provided them with a webpage showing supposed increases in the value of their investments.

However, when his victims tried to withdraw their money, they were given various excuses and were unable to do so. It was later discovered that none of the money had actually been invested and Skinner had used it to fund his own lifestyle.

Skinner pleaded guilty to conspiring to defraud those who invested with Tritex Global and was sentenced to two years and seven months in jail at Maidstone Crown Court. Detective Sergeant Adam Stallard, who led the investigation, warned others to be cautious when considering investments and to never be rushed into making a decision. He also advised people to seek advice and check the Financial Conduct Authority’s register before making any significant financial decisions.
