Man involved in Britain's biggest cyber fraud 'spent £3m on supercars, Harrods shopping sprees and parties with popstars'

 Feezan Hameed Choudhary, 28 was jailed for 11 years in 2016 for spearheading a 'vishing' scam that tricked 750 RBS
and Lloyds customers out of a total of £113million.

Detectives nicknamed him 'The Voice' after they discovered how he would put on Scottish, Welsh and posh English accents when he called victims' landlines and posed as fraud experts from their banks.
 He has been hauled back to Southwark Crown Court for a confiscation hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act. The hearing was told he raked in £1.5million a month from the scam, splashing out on Bentleys, Lamborghinis and flying car cleaners 8,000 miles from Lahore, Pakistan to where he lived in Glasgow to polish his vehicles.
 Choudhary and several accomplices were eventually caught after ripping off 750 victims in the biggest cyber-fraud the Metropolitan Police has ever seen.

Stolen funds were moved to a bank account 'at the touch of a button' and then distributed across a number of other accounts before the cash was withdrawn by 'money mules'.

The fraudsters used legitimate bank phone numbers to confuse victims.
