Numerous articles were written in the British Press warning potential clients to steer clear of his unauthorised schemes. One piece warned that despite his being 'not licensed anywhere as a stockbroker or financial adviser', he promised returns of 38 per cent on investments and once claimed to make a consistent return of 41 per cent a year.

Last night, his 56-year-old son John Wood, from East Grinstead, West Sussex, defended his father, saying: 'My father ran a series of high-risk investment schemes, and because they were "high risk" that was the nature of the beast.

'Dad was both ethical and above board, but when someone loses money they obviously become upset. I still maintain much of what he was involved in was an incredibly successful investment scheme which made him and many other people a lot of money.'
