Financial Mail Ltd
Registered 1919. Dissolved <1948. Company number 154438
The company issued a financial newspaper, pushing shares in which the Mandeville brothers, Alexis, Henry and Walter had an interest. The shares were sold through their Financial Mail and Exchange company in which the public were duped into investing. They all speculated wildly and at the time of this scandal they were all undischarged bankrupts living a life of luxury. It was one of Scotland Yard’s highest profile cases of fraud for which they were all sentenced to 6 years in prison.
Capital £100,000 in 360,000 ordinary shares of 5/- and 200,000 deferred shares of 1/-.
