A fraudster who advertised his counterfeit ID factory using a faux driving licence of former prime minister David Cameron has been jailed.

Dragoz Dragomir and 4 accomplices made £1m in a scam facilitated by faux paperwork, the Met Police said.

A pattern ID using Mr Cameron’s picture – with 10 Downing Street as his house tackle – was present in Dragomir’s rented workplace in Enfield, north London.

The gang have been handed jail sentences at Blackfriars Crown Court on Friday.

Their on-line scam involved a whole lot of adverts for non-existent goods and services being put on professional web sites akin to eBay, police said.

Fake identification paperwork made in Dragomir’s “factory” have been used to arrange financial institution accounts to receive money from the fraud, the Met added.

Det Con Chris Collins stated: “Dragomir was an enabler of serious crime whose merchandise are more likely to have helped others web millions of pounds from fraud and evade immigration control.”
