A MALE who scammed a deal store in a phony refund bid has actually been bought to do unpaid work.
Alexander Simmonds went into the B&M shop in Abingdon on September 21 in 2015.
The 24- year-old of Brandon Close, Kidlington, then went to incorrectly declare he had bought drapes from inside the store in order to acquire a refund, court documents reveal.
The 2 sets of drapes were valued at ₤9998 and it was stated that he provided them to personnel as previously bought products which he did not have an invoice.
This was done in order to get a credit note for future purchases.
He was sentenced for one count of scams by incorrect representation at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on September 30 this year.
Simmonds was made subject to a community order.
As part of that order he need to finish 15 rehabilitation activity requirement days and carry out 100 hours of overdue work.
Those hours were bought to be finished within the next 12 months and will be supervised by an accountable officer.
He needs to also pay a statutory victim additional charge of ₤90 in addition to a court costs amounting to ₤85
