According to Portsmouth’s The News site, an accounts worker at a firm supplying the NHS took more than £30,000 in less than a year.

Charmaine Moignard admitted siphoning payments off into her personal account and faking statements to mask the fraud totalling £32,460.97, between February 1, 2016 and January 20, 2017.

The fraud was only uncovered when Moignard was signed off sick and bosses looked at the unaltered online accounts.

Staff at the firm, which employs 33 people, were also concerned at the scale of the fraud. Company director Peter Toon said, “Staff were concerned as they did not know the extent of the fraud and whether they would lose their jobs.”
