The high end car rental firm leased vehicles like the Lamborghini

A car hire boss appeared at the City of London Magistrates Court this week charged with swindling hundreds of thousands of pounds. He is accused of defrauding his creditors out of £750,000 and a retired couple out of £150,000. Following an 8-month long investigation carried out by police and the Fraud Squad, Iranian-born Korush Pour now finds a case being launched against him relating to his business dealings whilst he was in charge of the luxury car hire company.

The 33-year-old ran his car hire company, Swift Hire Ltd, from upmarket Kensington in West London. His exclusive car hire firm leased and sold high end vehicles such as Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Ferraris.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge of running a business with intent to defraud a creditor. The investigation focused upon the period between January 1st 2006 and October 1st 2009 however Pour has again pleaded not guilty to knowingly being party to a business run for a fraudulent purpose during this time.

The main charge levelled at Pour is that he financed his vehicles twice; once through Lombard North Central PLC, and again through his customers.

Pour has been released on bail but is due back in court on November 23rd.
