I only became aware of this 'story' earlier this year and have been watching developments (or alleged developments) unfold with increasing perplexity.

It seems to shadow the UK's news agenda, absorbing recent developments like an ever-growing malignant amoeba. It's now "embroiled" HSBC too.

See: http://carrolltrustcase.com/

Due warning: The site explains almost nothing.

The associated twitter account has nearly two million followers.

Just what on earth is going on here? Is this an absolutely massive and explosive unreported story, or what?

Can anyone make sense of it?

(Googling it turns up no solid links to anything of substance, just more chatter)

I take it either everyone is as mystified as me, or I've picked a dull subject.

As chance would have it, I did some really determined googling (you know the kind: filter and focus, rinse and repeat) until I turned up a solid 'lead'.

The scandal is definitely real -- a real-world team of property assessors has been hired to look into the case by Scotland Yard -- and bugger me if one if the chief players in the saga doesn't live just around the corner from me!

(Not going to be more geographically specific than that, due to experiences with stalky internet mentalists).

I may give him a ring and see what he has to say. I doubt that this is the all-encompassing mega-scandal that the above website makes it out to be, but it is definitely real nevertheless.

Sorry, not clear which link you mean. Do you mean the one I referred to as 'the above website'? If so, it's in the first post on this thread, about halfway through.

I was hoping your 'lead' was from a website that could be linked.

If you mean the individual person I was referring to, then no, sorry -- call me paranoid, but it would give away my location and I've had too many bad experiences with lurking weirdos bringing OL things into RL.

If you mean the property surveyors, then I'm taking my 'lead' from this site, which looks reputable and the company they talk about exists and on a global scale. So I take this as confirmation.

No, I didn't mean the individual, don't think you're being paranoid, fully understanding your caution. Thanks for the link.

Have spoken to the Knight Frank press office concerning the Met Police retainer, and got back: "Sorry, but this is no comment from us."

Curious.

The dam breaks. Companies House fell for an old trick and have just confirmed that they can't comment 'due to the ongoing investigation'.
