A man has admitted fraud by false representation after using another person’s bank details.
Daniel Allen, 20, of Whitehill Drive, Rotherham, appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court yesterday charged with fraud and commission of a further offence during operational period of a suspended sentence order.
Prosecutor Mark Hughes told the court that the victim did not suspect anything until her husband noticed unauthorised transactions at different locations.
Several thousands of pounds was taken from the victim’s account between 18 and 24 November 2018.
The money was later returned by the bank.
District Judge Naomi Redhouse said Allen could have faced a jail sentence of up to 26 weeks.
She ordered him to pay a £50 fine as well a £85 victim surcharge and £100 in compensation. He was also given a 12 month community order.
