Harrods PA who bought TV and gift cards in '£66,000 fraud' pleads guilty

0 3

A former Harrods PA who spent up to £66,000 on luxury goods in a fraud on the store is facing jail. 

Aisha Razaq, 29, used a company credit card for the shopping sprees, treating herself to a £2,000 television, buying meals out, and purchasing Harrods gift cards for herself, which she spent at the Knightsbridge store. 

Harrods investigators identified at least £21,750 of purchases between March and September 2016, when Razaq worked at Harrods’s headquarters in Hammersmith, but Isleworth crown court has heard she gained “up to £66,000” by abusing her position of trust. 

The court was told a conclusive list was still being compiled, and the exact amount of the fraud will be determined when she is sentenced on October 29. 

Razaq, of Slough, was supported in court by her family yesterday as she pleaded guilty to one charge of fraud. Judge Jonathan Ferris freed her on bail until the sentencing hearing.
