The promoters of an internet get-rich-quick scheme are being taken to the High Court by the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. The Universal Wealth Register promises people who buy its tickets will double their money. It is accused of issuing false and misleading adverts and it is claimed that its ability to pay ticket holders must depend on ever-increasing ticket sales. The Department of Trade and Industry will argue that a point will arrive at which ticket sales are insufficient to meet the promises. The claim is against: David Edmonson of Calverton, Nottingham; Jeffrey Hinge of Yateley, Hampshire; Alan White of Great Bookham, Surrey; Tony White of Ashtead, Surrey; and Independent Management Solutions of Nottingham.
