Jailed scammers 'preyed on elderly', Swansea court told

The ringleaders of a Swansea call centre scam have been jailed for a total of 22 years, following the biggest trading standards investigation in Wales.

Fourteen people were sentenced for their part in selling £500,000 worth of bogus Sky satellite warranties.

The court heard they preyed on the elderly and vulnerable by cold calling them before persuading them to part with their money.

BBC Wales' X-Ray consumer programme uncovered the story.
