‘Deceitful’ man BULLY his grandparents into handing over £340,000 of their life savings


Daniel Tilden, 31, manipulated his grandparents into handing over £384,000. His victims were too afraid of him to refuse his demands, into giving him £384,000 over a ten-year-period.

What Happened?

It all started when Tilden began visiting his grandparents’ home frequently in 2013, he started selling them lies to persuade them to part with their money, claiming it was for a new car or prescriptions, and once even alleging it was for private cancer treatment.

Court Ruling

On Wednesday, April 24, Tilden was handed a sentence of three years and nine months in prison at Swindon Crown Court. He was also fined and must not contact his grandparents for 10 years.

At first, he would accompany his vulnerable grandfather, aged 81, to a bank to withdraw thousands of pounds at a time.

But when the bank put a stop to this, he started pressuring his grandfather to get cashback at local supermarkets, before then arranging meetings at cashpoints for withdrawals. 

Tilden was finally arrested in November last year and released on bail while investigations continued, repeatedly violating conditions that prohibited him from visiting his grandparents.

He was subsequently re-arrested and charged with controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship under section 76 of the Serious Crime Act after manipulating his grandparents into handing over a total of £384,077.
