Lloyds fraudsters jailed for scamming rich clients

Four former Lloyds employees were among seven people jailed for a combined 38 years for plundering wealthy clients’ accounts to fund their luxury lifestyles.

Courtney Ayinbode, Tajinder Galsinh, Benjamin Omoregie and Molly Jones were part of a group described as ‘high-level and sophisticated’ scammers, who robbed funds between 2012 and 2013.

The London-based employees ordered cards and falsified client addresses and phone numbers in order to enable them to pose as account holders and transfer hundreds of thousands of pounds.

One victim lost a reported £750,975 over three days in July 2013 while a customer with £3 million in their account was only alerted to suspicious activity when another bank employee phoned for verification.

Their associate Kushveer Raulia established a string of offshore holding companies in order to launder the cash, the court heard.
