Ian Vaughan the founder of the 3Business group of companies consisting of Flight Academy Scotland, Mobsi, MMs3, Comms International, Text Operator and many others, is currently being investigated for fraud by UK Customs and Excise after the collapse of his many companies and feature on BBC Watchdog.

His core business is communications and he specialises in mobile content. He has been the subject of numerous complaints to regulators of the communications industry for text scams and continues to trade in mobile content despite the collapse of his group of companies. He is rumoured to still be driven in a chauffered Bentley and live in a country estate whilst exploiting the new markets of African countries with text message scams.
