I can't find the article but some bint siphoned off £800k from the company she worked for and got 3 years, on the basis she didn't give it back she got over £250k a year tax free.

On a more lucrative level http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2171031/Bu...

Say they have to serve 11 years its £3m a year tax free.

Ths is surely a lucrative and recession proof career, it should be taught in schools.

anyone who has worked in the criminal justice system knows crime pays

thats why the proceeds of crime act is so good.

i know of a case recently where someone got fined £500 (5 offences) for selling fake goods but got a £70,000 proceeds of crime order against them! i bet they would rather do a couple of months inside than give up 70k.

never been able to understand this..
A girl local was caught writing cheques to herself from her employers account, only after having done it for well over a year. She got a suspended sentence with community service and didnt have to pay back the 250k she stole as far as anyone is aware.... WTF??
If you dont pay your utility or tax bill you end up in court and forced to pay, so why didnt she get some kind of payment order??

A compensation order won't be voided by a prison sentence - it still has to be fulfilled.

Yep, it's not go to prison and keep your winnings.

As much money will be recovered as possible. They can be sure they'll never get in a job like that again though. 3 years in prison and no future.

Don't get caught in the first place.

Obviously the answer is not to commit fraud in the first place, and they thoroughly deserve the punishment they get. But it would be nice to pull off a really big one and get away with it

Can't paste the link from my phone, but there's a story on there about an American guy who bagged $40m and (apparently) faked his own death and went to Venezuela. Pretty cool.

We don't hear about the clever ones who do not get caught...just the greedy ones

Here we go, I figured it out.

Not sure about clever, he had to fake his own death. But if he did make it to Chavezstan with $40m he'll be pretty well set up.

Think of the practicalities. You need to have a way of accessing that 40m and laundering it somehow. You will have to engage the services of someone dodgy. You are totally in their hands once they have the money, they can kill you and keep the money, dump your body in a ditch and no one will ever hear from you again.

Once you have the money you will be in constant fear of someone finding you and again either exposing you or taking all the money and killing you.

I was once questioned in relation to this, I pleaded guilty, got community service and kept the 22k.

nothing to show for it now tho, except a bad memory.
