A debt-laden student from London who became involved in a £25,000 cheque scam after a friend told her it was a way to make "easy money" has been spared jail.

Elsa Lopes, 22, was given a ten-month prison sentence suspended for two years at the Old Bailey after admitting two counts of fraud.

The court heard that Lopes, of Murray Square, Victoria Docks, was a student at the University of Hertfordshire. She was also working three days a week as a customer service officer at the Ilford branch of NatWest bank.

Lopes used her position to access security details and view the signatures of account holders. She was caught after a cheque for £8,500 was cashed, using the information, at a branch of the bank in Camden, north London.

Further investigation found fraudulent withdrawals of £7,500 and £9,000 from another account.

Lopes was arrested in October and admitted what she had done, prosecutor Paul Douglass told the court.

"She said while at university a friend of hers had told her how she could make some easy money and put her in touch with someone to pass on bank details."

Lopes said she had met a man and given him details of the accounts, and in return she received £400, Mr Douglass said. The man was said to have been in touch with a corrupt postman through whom he was able to obtain chequebooks.

Avirup Chaudhuri, defending, said Lopes came from a "law abiding, God fearing, high achieving" family and was ashamed of her crime, which had caused "incalculable damage" to her future job prospects.

Judge Timothy Pontius said: "These are serious matters." But he agreed to suspend the sentence, also ordering Lopes to carry out 160 hours of unpaid work and handing her a 12-month supervision requirement.
