Fraud Investigation on CEE (Complete Energy Europe)

Apparently the company (Complete Energy Europe) have been selling an unproven type of radiator made by a company called ‘Xefro’, which uses graphene as a component. However, there are no online reviews of the product on the internet and there have apparently been meltdowns of these radiators when installed. Other residents, including some in Leeds, have paid deposits to the company and have been left out of pocket in some cases by thousands of pounds as the companies above have gone out of business. It also transpires that the owners of these companies have been involved in similar scandals with different companies in the past. The companies are currently under investigation by  Action Fraud, Trading Standards and the fire services.
