Overview

AnotherDay were instructed to support an ongoing criminal investigation into a high value internal theft and fraud.

Over the period of 10 years the former employee had stolen almost £3 million from the hedge fund whilst she was employed as the office manager. Our investigators were required to review thousands of documents that provided overwhelming evidence of her sophisticated fraud.

All material was seized, exhibited and scheduled as per current Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act (CPIA) guidelines suitable for trial at Crown Court. During the process, AnotherDay uncovered evidence of luxury purchases that the former employee made out to be for businesses purposes but was really to feed her expensive lifestyle; this included purchases of high end vehicles, furniture, gym memberships and expensive designer clothing.

The former employee pleaded guilty to three counts of fraud by abuse of position, and one count of fraud by false representation. She was sentenced to four and a half years imprisonment.
