A carer from Chiswick who defrauded an 87 year old widow out of more than £13,000 has been handed a suspended prison sentence

28 year old Effat Chowdhury pleaded guilty to six counts of fraud by false representation.

She’d quickly gained her employer’s trust and was allowed access to her bank card and PIN so she could make cash withdrawals on her behalf.

Chowdhury was sentenced to 12 months’ suspended for 12 months, 200 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay £1,200 in compensation.
