Duracell Energy Drink Fraud – NOT GUILTY !!
The famous Duracell name in an elaborate scam to sell international rights to a non-existent energy drink.
Also on the trial was a Bradford criminal solicitor who allegedly “nobbled” witnesses and was filmed handing over money to buy their silence.
Five firms based in Dubai, Hong Kong, Hungary and Iran had paid for exclusive international rights for the Duracell energy drink which only existed in the form of dummy cans.
The companies were the victims of a carefully planned international advanced-fee fraud.
GQS represented the only defendant who faced a re-trial and was eventually found not guilty. He was also awarded costs.
