Church Elder Who Stole A Woman’s £600,000 Life Savings Is Ordered To Pay Back Just £1

Published

A church elder who stole a woman’s £600,000 life savings and told her it was going into a non-existent offshore scheme has been sentenced to pay back just £1.

David Vaughan Jones, 83, the founder of the Evangelical Church in Newtown, Powys, defrauded members of his congregation by recommending the fraudulent plan. He allegedly pretended to be a respected tax consultant in order to dupe members of his congregation.

According to the court, businesswoman Sharon Myler was the ‘largest single loser,’ having been defrauded of £606,000.

Prosecutor James Davis explained that she only discovered the scam after he was imprisoned for other financial crimes.

‘He persuaded clients to invest in offshore accounts, which he claimed would provide a much higher return than investing in the United States,’ Mr. Davis explained.

‘However, police found no evidence of him ever investing in offshore accounts.’ It was only possible to conclude that the funds did not exist.’

Miss Myler allegedly handed over six separate sums ranging from £30,000 to £160,000 to Jones at Mold Crown Court.

However, no trace of the money was discovered, and he was only ordered to pay a nominal £1.

‘A financial investigation revealed no assets that could be realized to contribute to that figure,’ Mr Davis explained.

‘The defendant is receiving both a private and a state pension. As a result, his honor is invited to place a nominal order of £1 today. Clearly, if any assets become available in the future, this is a subject that can and should be revisited.’

‘David Jones stole my life savings, causing huge financial and personal hardship,’ Ms Myler said in a victim impact statement. He betrayed my trust, lied all the time, and stole a lot of money from me. I had to borrow money from my family, which was humiliating.’

However, he lacked any financial qualifications and was a disgraced former solicitor who was expelled from The Law Society in the early 1990s.

The court heard that ‘prominent’ Jones used his church influence to persuade members to part with large sums of money over a 20-year period.

Jones, of Llandrinio, Powys, was told by Judge Niclas Parry that the money could not be found.

‘It should be noted that an investigation was conducted by officers whose job it is to investigate these matters,’ he said.

‘Remarkably, given how much money was stolen, they simply cannot find it. It is correct to state that the investigation will continue, and if assets are discovered, this order will be reconsidered.

‘There are still people begging me to do something about it, and they understandably believe I’ve let them down.’

‘I simply want them to know that there are people looking into and have been looking into where the remaining money is.’ These people have suffered tremendous losses.’

Video Of Single Ladies Crying To God For A Husband Goes Viral

Published

on

Apparently, the “men are scum” mantra only exists on social media, because most single ladies are desperate for men to marry them.

A video that has elicited mixed reactions from social media users depicts a group of desperate single ladies earnestly praying to God for husbands.

The worried ladies can be heard singing to God at the top of their lungs in an attempt to entice men to marry them because age is clearly catching up with them.

It’s amazing how many people run to God when they need something and then abandon Him once they have it.

I’m sure God sent them their way, but their bad attitude and classism prevent them from seeing them.

Watch the video below.

Below are some of the hilarious comments gathered under the video;

@Mis_silva – Lol. Cool though but I feel this is one of the reasons men misbehave ?. I can’t imagine a gathering of men singing “carry my wife de come my house” but every aboki with e kettle sha????????????????????

@Sheddy_Skills – Go to the next shiloh and see twitter woman that are leaving their best life praying fervently for a husband.

@Leoonezzer – Leave them, let them continue deceiving themselves, just give them some time they will start asking “where have all the good men gone?” After walking all over them years ago with their stilettos.

A thief of Nigerian origin who was apprehended in James Town couldn’t believe his good fortune when he was given a special treat.

Instead of bringing the thief to justice right away, the kind group or mob decided to assist the poor thief, who was clearly shaken after being apprehended.

To demonstrate their generosity, they decided to stream the entire session with the thief on Facebook Live, giving him food, assisting him in changing his clothes after bathing, and offering him psychological support.

In the live video, the youth leader explained the reasoning behind their collective decision not to lynch or beat the thief to death.

“We are decent people.” We don’t want to kill or beat you as “Gas.” As a result, we changed your clothes, assisted you in showering, and provided you with food. “That’s how we decided to treat you after we caught you stealing,” he explained.

The Central Region Police are investigating the death of a level 300 student from the Cape Coast Technical University on Friday night at OLA Estate in Cape Coast.

Nana Ama Clark’s body was discovered in a pool of blood, minus her private parts.

Police received word around 9:00 p.m. on Friday that a female adult had been discovered dead by the roadside at OLA Estate, near the OLA College of Education in Cape Coast.

When police arrived on the scene, they discovered the body of an unknown woman, around the age of 24, lying naked with her private part ‘vagina’ chopped off and bruises all over her body.

Residents in the area are outraged by the incident and have asked police to apprehend and prosecute the perpetrators.

The 24-year-old was killed by a hit-and-run vehicle, according to residents. Even before the police finish their investigation, residents claim that circumstantial evidence does not support an accident but rather a well-planned scheme.

Residents of OLA Estate have also asked the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly to repair the neighborhood’s broken street lights.

The entire OLA-Bakaano section, where the event took place, is completely dark at night, and residents believe that the darkness encourages criminals to commit such crimes.
