Five people have been charged by detectives investigating a wine investment scam.
Investigators believe victims have handed over tens of thousands of pounds to invest in specialist Australian wines which did not exist.
Kelly Humphries, 30, of Wallington, Surrey, Simon Robert Dempsey, 42, of Sidcup, Kent, Daniel Thomas Snelling, 36, of Sutton, Surrey, Dina Snelling, 34, of Chislehurst, Kent, and Rebecca McDonald, 42, of Bexleyheath, southeast London, have been charged with conspiracy to defraud and money laundering.
They were arrested by fraud squad officers in March 2010 before being released on police bail.
The five are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on May 11.
