PA Blew Care Co's Cash On Holidays And Internet Shopping

Care UK's HQ
A PA to the executives who run Care UK – a company providing services to the elderly and NHS patients – splurged thousands on holidays and internet purchases with their money.

Vaishali Vyas, 44, of Smallwood Road, Tooting used the company credit cards to treat herself for over a year.

She was sentenced at Inner London Crown Court to six months imprisonment, suspended for twelve months, and ordered to repay £16,912 to the company.

Vyas, who attended Merton College where she studied business, worked at Care UK's HQ in Great Guildford Street, near Southwark Bridge.

She pleaded guilty when she appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court and was committed to the crown court for sentencing due to the seriousness of the offence.

Vyas was charged with one count of fraud by abuse of position between May 1, 2014 and September 1, 2015, namely making flight and hotel bookings, plus high street and Amazon purchases with company funds.

She was also charged with stealing £1,298 in coffee club cash at the company HQ.
