Cheadle Hulme salesman faked £12,000 Order to save Job


Acourt was told how an under-performing salesman from Cheadle Hulme faked a £12,000 computer software order from a customer.

He was sacked after the fraud came to light.

Kevin Garvin, aged 50, of Queens Road, Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, pleaded guilty to conning AP Systems at Rhyl in January last year and was described as “extremely remorseful”.

Magistrates at Llandudno imposed a twelve-month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay £2,000 compensation, instead of £7,850 sought by his ex-employer, and £105 costs.
