CONMEN who dubbed themselves The Wolves of Wind Street have been jailed for tricking pensioners out of £425,000.
They named themselves after hit Hollywood movie The Wolf of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
The four ran a ruthless cold calling operation, promising free boilers under a "Government scheme".
They swindled 1,200 people and blew the cash in the bars and clubs of Wind Street, Swansea.
Prosecutor Lee Reynolds said: "This business targeted elderly consumers in what can be described as an audacious and calculated fraud."
Mr Reynolds said: "There were no Government schemes that would enable people who were not on benefits to have free boilers."
