A conman who established 130 false identities to defraud UK banks out of £1.1m was jailed for five-and-a-half years on Monday. Kanagaratnam Ganan, 33, used 129 false Indian passports and one bogus Sri Lankan passport as well as forged utility bills to open up bank accounts. After establishing a history of paying bills he sought credit facilities before scarpering with the loot, leaving banks chasing a ghost.
