Gloucester IT worker accused of fraud involving more than £30,000

A 23 year old Gloucester IT worker is to stand jury trial accused of fraud involving more than £30,000 worth of Amazon vouchers which he allegedly sold on eBay.

Jack Walden of Cranham Close, Abbeymead, apeared before Cheltenham Magistrates on January 6th facing three charges and was committed to Gloucester Crown Court for trial.

He is accused of dishonestly abusing his position as an IT assistant at Kingsbridge Risk Solutions, Tewkesbury, by intending to make a gain for himself of £30,145 worth of Amazon voucher codes as well as electronic and computer equipment. The charge is dated between 27th March 2017 and 26th April 2018.

He is also charged that between the same dates he concealed, disguised, converted, transferred or removed the voucher codes and electronic and computer equipment by means of selling them on eBay.

The third and final charge against him is that he committed an offence against the Computer Misuse Act 1990 to steal the voucher codes.

The magistrates granted him unconditional bail pending his first appearance at the Crown Court on January 18th.
