The jury hearing the trial of a Wymondham woman who is alleged to have duped elderly customers into buying “therapy units” are due to continue with their deliberations today.
Georgina Dean, 39, of Barnham Broom Road, Wymondham, is on trial at Norwich Crown Court accused of deceiving elderly customers by promising the mats were medically approved and could treat a number of conditions including Parkinson’s.
Dean, also known as Elizabeth, who operated under two different trading names, Norfolk Eco and the Green Leaf Group, has denied two charges of fraudulent trading.
The jury was sent home after being out for two hours and was due to resume their deliberations today.
The jury has been told customers paid up to £700 for what Norfolk Trading Standards claim are cheap massage mattresses which can be bought on Ebay for £30.
