A Barclays Bank cashier from Wembley accused of passing on his customers’ bank details on to a shadowy gang of fraudsters is facing a retrial after jurors were unable to reach a verdict.
Southwark Crown Court heard claims that Anthony Banfield-Sturgess, 24, of Sylvia Gardens, disclosed the confidential account information while working at the Soho Square branch in the West End.
The personal data allowed the crooks to ‘take over’ depositor’s accounts, splashing the victims’ cash on lavish shopping trips during early 2010.
Customers lost a total of £87,000, with the money being used to fund high street sprees, the court was told.
Banfield-Sturgess denied a single count of conspiring to commit fraud by way of abuse of position.
