A major investigation by Kent Trading Standards has resulted in a 6 year prison term for a serial rogue trader.
Alfie Ackleton, 35, of Gravesend, conned one victim out of £288,000 for work that should have cost £26,000 at the most. The victim lost his entire inheritance. Another two vulnerable consumers were fleeced out of a further £22,000.
Ackleton pleaded guilty to the charges but went on the run prior to sentencing. He was eventually arrested at another victim’s house after an anoymous tip off.
