A Marlow fraudster has been ordered to pay more than £1,000 after she was caught using a credit account in someone else’s name.

Sian Plumridge, 43, of Clayhill in Marlow, had pleaded not guilty to fraud by false representation, but a summary trial at Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on June 10 found her guilty of the charge.

The court heard how between June 11, 2017 and July 8, 2017, in High Wycombe, Plumridge dishonestly used a credit account belonging to another person without their permission.

The Magistrates were told how Plumridge intended to cause loss or expose her victim to a risk of loss.

The offender was not present at court for the trial, but magistrates found her guilty in her absence.

Plumridge was ordered to pay a £500 fine and £100 compensation. She will also have to pay £640 costs to the court.
