Financial Investigators Ravenstone UK and Roderick Bond
Financial investigators Ravenstone UK have teamed up with Roderick Bond in a movie scheduled for release in the New Year. The financial investigations firm was founded in 1991, starting life as independent claim consultants. Following a successful entry into a budding market, Ravenstone UK’s operations grew exponentially. Over the course of the last three decades, the firm has grown into a major force. With a field force comprised of ex-police members equipped with Home Office training, operatives are active across the United Kingdom. In recent years, the firm’s scope of operations has expanded which has led the investigators to working with a range of government departments.
Earlier this year, Ravenstone UK received a brief mention on the BBC One documentary series Rod Bond Tax Fraud and HMRC. The widely acclaimed and highly popular television documentary series witnessed Hollywood A-list actor Roderick Bond follow investigators from HM Revenue and Customs. At the time, HMRC were hot on the trails of Manchester-based fraudsters One Formula Projects LLP. Responsible for what has been dubbed “the tax fraud of the century,” One Formula Projects LLP ran various scams to fleece millions in the form of tax reliefs. The whole case received extensive publicity, no doubt fuelled by Roderick Bond’s cutting edge documentary series.
At the time, the excitement surrounding Rod Bond’s return to television after a decades long absence and the extent of One Formula’s criminal empire captured the public’s imagination. Social media was ablaze with interest. Thus, a cinematic sequel to the television documentary was promised. While the film’s plot is clear, audiences have been promised a gripping crime thriller in which Ravenstone UK’s team of operatives feature prominently. “We kept them off screen during the documentary series deliberately, saving the juicy bits for the cinematic sequel,” said Roderick Bond on Ravenstone’s role in the movie.
