Terrence “Terry” Adams the head of the Adams Family one of Britain’s most powerful organized crime families is once again being targeted by law enforcement. Considered one of the most feared and powerful mob bosses in Britain and the brains behind the Adams Family also known as the Clerkenwell Crime Syndicate or A-Team. Prosecutors claim that a clothing firm owned by his wife named “N1 Angel” is not a legitimate business and was only designed to help hide the families ill gotten gains. N1 Angel claims to be an outfitter to famous stars including Tiago Silva and Neymar Jr both well know Brazilian footballers.
Adams is also currently fighting the High Court in an attempt to write off £628,000 ($1,074,916 US) of a total £750,000 that he still owes the state from a 2007 conviction for conspiring to conceal earlier criminal proceeds. Now claiming that he is broke because of little money being made by his enterprises although prosecutors claim there is a strong case that the mobster has substantial undisclosed assets. Prosecutors point to some of the couples spending habits which include spa memberships of £3,850 and £15,000 spent toward restaurants and holidays for the couple as examples of unreported assets.
N1 Angel lists Adams as the companies head designer and then company name is a dedication to Angel, Islington (N1, London) where he was born and raised. But Kennedy Talbot for the Crown Prosecution Service told the High Court N1 Angel was not a legitimate business. Mrs Adams insist the company is legitimate and she hired on her husband because he obviously dresses well.
A High Court judge previously ruled that Adams had accumulated a considerable fortune from a highly successful criminal career he maintained over a significant period of time. Since his 2010 release from prison it is unknown as to his current status with in the organized crime family.
