‘A person who opened bank accounts which he knew or suspected would then be used by a fraudster to deposit money which the latter hoped to obtain from victims could be charged with entering into an arrangement to facilitate the retention of criminal property, contrary to section 328(1) of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, even though there was no criminal property until after victims’ money had been paid into the accounts.’
