Oakham fraudster jailed for paying off £107,000 tax fraud scam with more stolen money
A serial fraudster has been jailed for four years and nine months after repaying a tax fraud debt with money stolen in another scam.
Duncan Johnson, 57, of Main Street in Teigh, Oakham, admitted a £107,000 tax fraud but promised the judge that he’d repay the money, so sentencing was postponed for six months.
But HM Revenue and Customs investigators discovered Johnson was raising the money to pay the debt through a second scam that involved stealing more than £500,000 from other businesses.
