A4e slough flooded?

with one comment

A4e caught out for fraud; chairperson and founder forced to step down, terminate her directorship and leave a position in an unpopular Government… what else could go wrong? A flood… maybe?

John Dickens, Slough Observer, 29th Feb 2012 @ noon – “Branch at centre of the A4e fraud storm shut up shop

ANY hopes the branch at the centre of A4e’s headline-grabbing fraud investigations had of putting the fiasco behind them have been dampened.

A leaking pipe flooded the offices, in High Street, forcing them to shut up shop on Monday morning.

The company had to turn people away at the door, sending customers to the nearest branch in Reading.

A spokesperson said: “There has been a flood in the offices and we had to temporarily close them.

“Customers who had an appointment have been referred to the nearest branch, which is mostly Reading.”

The offices remain closed while the problem is fixed.

Well this is what the Slough Observer reckons, although within 2 hours of being reported, the article vanished (thanks to Google cache, we have the article text above).

This may have been a joke/vexatious report (although its a leap year, its not 1st April) or perhaps A4e have threatened the Slough Observer with legal action?


  • Hoax
  • Exaggeration (leaking pipe maybe, but not a flood?)
  • Incidental
  • Deliberate

I sure hope this isn’t intention to create a distraction, destroy documents/evidence or claim on the insurance!!!
