    The four ran a ruthless cold calling operation, promising free boilers under a “Government scheme”.

    They swindled 1,200 people and blew the cash in the bars and clubs of Wind Street, Swansea.

    Prosecutor Lee Reynolds said: “This business targeted elderly consumers in what can be described as an audacious and calculated fraud.”

    Mr Reynolds said: “There were no Government schemes that would enable people who were not on benefits to have free boilers.”


    Kyle Lewis, 30, of Port Talbot, Darren Palmer, 42, and David Alford, 33, were sentenced to three years and nine months.

    Jason Cunliff, 42, was jailed for 18 months at Swansea crown court.

    Judge Geraint Walters said: “You were living the life and couldn’t stop it.”
