The complaint was recently filed at Larnaca CID by the 64-year-old who claimed that a 66-year-old fellow Briton from Mazotos and a 70-year-old Cypriot man from Limassol were behind the scam which he says took place between 2012 and 2013.
The man claims that the duo had duped him into buying various shares at a cost of €140,000 with the promise that they would yield him a return of around €29million.
He also told police that he had transferred money from his bank account in Cyprus to an account in the UK belonging to the 70-year-old Cypriot man.
