Punjab-origin man jailed for property fraud in UK

Jaspal Singh Juttla, an Indian-origin man, has been sentenced to three years' imprisonment for fraud after fleecing potential property buyers out of nearly £16,000 in London. Juttla, 64, impersonated a mortgage adviser and conned his clients, many of whom were of Indian heritage, into handing over money for services that were never carried out. The offences occurred between May 2019 and January 2021, and Juttla pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud by false representation and one count of carrying out a regulated activity when not authorised to do so. The police believe there may be other unreported victims.
