Ex-Broker Sold Fake Car Cover for Pounds 10

Apr 16, 2007

A LIVERPOOL pensioner was behind bars today after he admitted running a car insurance scam.

Former insurance broker Gerrard MacDonald, 70, sold fake cover notes to uninsured motorists so they could tax their cars.

The illicit business was unearthed when one of the motorists he supplied with phoney cover was involved in an accident and another was stopped by police.

MacDonald collapsed in the dock when he was jailed for nine months at Liverpool crown court yesterday.

Police found more than 100 blank insurance cover notes and other documents when they raided the offices of MacDonald's insurance company in Walton Road in August, 2005.

MacDonald, of Bousfield Street, Kirkdale, admitted selling them to clients for pounds 10 each, believing they used the paperwork to get their cars taxed before selling them.
