Mr Lee Wiggins took thousand of s from unsuspecting UK investors looking for second home/investment in Dubai. He promised turnkey apartments with guaranteed rentals and delivered absolutely nothing. He is continued to be supported by Barclays, Dubai Government and the UK government. He used this money to purchase a mansion in Essex UK and live a life of luxury.
He has built a multi million pound building called Empire heights in Dubai in Business Bay with support of Barclays bank, no doubt he will rip them off too, leaving the Barclays customers to absorb the losses.
Within the contract it is clear if the developer cancels the project then the deposits will be refunded to the investors, yet he has cancelled the projects and refuses to refund the investors. Dubai Government refuses to force him to honour his contract, even though all the contracts are registered with Dubai governments land department, Yet a poor expatriate whos cheque bounces can be jailed in Dubai.in fact he has several other companies in Dubai and millions of pounds worth of assets. Why are the interests of thousands of investors who together have lost millions not being taken seriously by UAE government.
All the UK investors paid into a UK based company GPD, into UK bank account and yet our government is not interested in supporting the poor victims of this con trick.
Barclays continues to support Mr Wiggins in his various business activities. I guess Banks may not be interested who their business associates con and Rip off as long as there is money to be made.
