Between May 2011 and April last year he conned 600 drivers into buying worthless policies over the phone. Many victims only realised they'd been scammed when they had their car seized by police for having no insurance. According to an investigation by City of London Police's Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED), the 42-year-old made more than £550,000 by making up the bogus websites.
The fake sites were called Aston Midshires Insurance, Astuto Insurance, Car Insurance Warehouse and First Car Direct Insurance.
Detective Constable Patrick Einsmann, who led the investigation, said: "Buckharee executed the UK's biggest ghost broking scam, making half a million pounds and leaving 600 people oblivious to the fact they were driving on our roads uninsured.
