Diana Woolley, 46, of Wansunt Road, Bexley, pled guilty to eleven counts of dishonestly making false representation at Croydon Crown Court and was sentenced to carry out 180 hours unpaid community service, pay £12,555.47 compensation to the victim and £4,000 court costs.

The agency worker was hired as a temporary accountant from at construction and property company Calfordseadon in Knoll Rise, Orpington, between February and October 2008, to cover for the regular accountant who was on sickness leave.

When the regular accountant returned to work in October 2008, Woolley’s fraud came to light, after payments were discovered to have been made to a number of companies that did not exist.

She was arrested at her home address in March 2009 and continued to deny the offences, claiming she had taken the money to test the security systems and said she had paid it all back. But she pled guilty on May 9 and was sentenced on June 17.
