Fraudster with penchant for watches jailed

First published: 24-09-2009

A man with an insatiable hunger for buying watches has been jailed for 18 months after fraudulently using someone else's money to buy them, it has been reported.

According to the Croydon Advertiser, 35-year-old Shaunisedeen Braimoh spent £170,000 of another person's cash on a range of luxury watches, including two from Harrods worth £22,000 for the pair.

The confiscation order was made when it was found that Mr Braimoh was dishonestly retaining a wrongful credit.

Upon getting the money, the guilty man withdrew it in a number of different ways, at various post offices across London, exchanging the money into euros which he is understood to have sent abroad.

Mr Braimoh will have to repay £119,859 of his fraudulently obtained money.

Detective constable Joe Ryan, the financial investigator who worked on the confiscation case, told the newspaper: "The Payback Unit are dedicated to making sure crime doesn't pay.

"Braimoh has discovered the hard way that even after conviction we continue to pursue criminals for their ill-gotten gains."

Croydon has been featuring heavily in the courts this week, most notably for Select Plant Hire Company's breach of Health and Safety laws after part of one of its cranes collapsed onto the Croydon Park Hotel causing damage and loss of business in the region of £4.8 million.
