Police car 1

Compensation for victims

Operation Octagon relates to a Devon and Cornwall Police investigation into Crown Currency Exchange Ltd, based in Hayle, which began in 2010.

In 2017, confiscation and compensation orders were issued to Susan Benstead and Edward James by Southwark Crown Court and since then as funds have been made available, some victims have received their compensation.

Further funds are still outstanding from Mrs Benstead and the HMCTS London Regional Confiscation Unit is beginning to reach out to the remaining victims who are due compensation.
