This British ex-pat, apparently living in Spain, possibly running a bar, tried to transfer over £50,000 belonging to a London hotel group, into our account in December 2000, causing us problems when a rather stupid or amoral Metropolitan police officer suspected that we, as would be recipients, were the only possible suspects. When he re-surfaced a few years later, the Met neglected to act on our report to them.

BNTA Early Warning Report Failure
We reported the Fred Eder incident to the BNTA (British Numismatic Trade Association), asking them to add this to their next "Early Warning Report" to members. They declined to do so, stating that naming him might be considered as defamatory. At the time, we thought this was weak and toothless of them, a view which has only intensified over time.
If you remember or wish to discuss the character above, we be pleased to hear from you!
