Oakham fraudster jailed

Duncan Johnson stole half a million pounds from businesses by taking online payments

A serial fraudster from Oakham's been jailed for over 4 and a half years.

Duncan Johnson's web of lies unravelled after he stole over half a million pounds from businesses by taking online payments for merchandise such as football flags and virtual reality goggles that were never dispatched.

The 57 year old from Main Street was actually using profits to pay off debts from another fraud he'd been caught doing.

He confessed at Leicester Crown Court and work is already underway to recover the stolen cash.
