Two Essex men who carried out a six figure scam involving rare metals have been jailed following a five year investigation.
Lee Kantor – who’s from Southend – and Ryan Wilkinson from Little Wakering – convinced people to invest in a business by purchasing rare earth metals.
One victim parted with over three hundred thousand pounds.
After making a small initial profit the money dried up – the victims also received no confirmation or certification.
Two other men – from Upminster and Hornchurch – are due to be sentenced at a later date.
