Officers say they are probing a further three cases after the accountant was jailed for illegally pocketing more than £276,000 from the life insurance and pension policies of a murdered father.
Police spokesman Lee Page said: “We have had contact from three other people who claim they have been duped by Bill Williams.”
Page could not give details of the amounts of money allegedly involved in the three cases.
Father-of-two Williams is just two days into a five-and-a-half year prison term for taking cash owed to the daughter of murdered South Staffordshire company director Andrew Diack.
Diack had formed the policies on the advice of Williams, who worked as an accountant for Featherstone-based Spray Tanker Services, which 29-year-old Diack co-owned.
When Diack was stabbed to death at Wolverhampton’s Flying Dutchman Pub in 2009, Williams, who was listed as administrator of the two policies, set in motion a plan to steal the funds.
Williams, a grandfather of two of Chester Road, West Bromwich, spent the cash on luxury family holidays to the USA, season tickets at Aston Villa and lavish family parties.
