Fight Against Maturity

You should own a hotel before you sell it.

An out-of-work truck driver has been jailed for five years for trying to sell London’s exclusive Ritz Hotel for £250 million.

Anthony Lee had persuaded a financier and a property dealer that he was an associate of the Barclay brothers, the hotel’s owners, reports the BBC.

In what the judge called ‘an elaborate and outrageous scam’, Lee intimated that the brothers had secret reasons for selling their hotel and wanted to do it through a third party.
