Mail order scam: 'Addicted' Bridgend OAP spent £15k


A pensioner spent £15,000 when he became addicted to a mail order scam which has duped thousands of vulnerable and elderly people, his daughter-in-law says.

Julie Davies, of Bridgend, said her father-in-law spent thousands until his family realised what was happening.

A BBC investigation uncovered the scam, whose victims thought they had won tens of thousands of pounds.
