The scheme operated between 2017and 2019 and had several hundred members.
The three men who have been charged are as follows:
Christopher Toynton, aged 72, of Horseshoe Road, Spalding has been charged with:
Ross Gibson, aged 26, of Eve Lane, Dudley (previously from Spalding)
Philip Cavener, aged 60, of Douglas Road, Bedford.
They will appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on 9th December.
Investigating officer PC Phil Gidlow from the ECU said: “This has been a very complex investigation and we would like to thank everyone who has so far come forward to provide information.
"We continue to appeal to anyone else who may have been affected but has not yet come forward, to please contact the investigation team by email on [email protected]”
