A pensioner is among three people accused of running timeshare and stock exchange frauds worth £500,000.
Frances Harris, 73, of Dudeney Lodge, Brighton, Graham Lewis, 50, of Firlands, Haywards Heath, and Rosemary Nye, 53, of Butlers Green Road, Haywards Heath, have been charged with money-laundering and fraud.
The charges followed an investigation into an alleged “boiler room” stocks and shares fraud in 2009 and 2010.
The inquiry also dealt with an alleged timeshare sales fraud.
Harris and Lewis were remanded in custody until a hearing at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, February 27. Nye was bailed until Monday, February 4.
