A man who was jailed five years ago for his involvement in a mobility aids scam is now operating a new scheme which targets actors, according to a report by the BBC.
Conman Carl Mould was imprisoned for a scam which saw elderly and vulnerable people being overcharged for mobility products which often did not arrive. At one point during the scam, Mould escorted on victim to the bank claiming he was a doctor.
Now, Mould is said to have posed as a famous voice actor and then offered to help people make money from audiobook narration.
The 52-year-old from Nottingham has gained around £100,000 in 18 months, according to the report.
The BBC confronted Mould but he insists he has not done anything wrong. His company, Sun King Media, refutes the claims that it targets older, vulnerable or retired people as “nonsense”.
It is understood that Mould has now left his offices after the lease was terminated following the news of the new alleged scam.
A representative from actors’ union Equity said it had received a number of complaints and its legal department is now investigating the claims.
