Agent admits conning clients to pay money into personal bank account

A former employee of Martin & Co has admitted operating a fraud scheme that involved agency clients paying money into his personal bank account. 

Michael Goldberg, aged 29, was working for Martin & Co’s Aberdeen office at the time of the offence in 2015 and 2016 according to a report in the Aberdeen Evening Express. 

Goldberg, from Watford, obtained £14,617 through the scheme.


The newspaper reports: “Defence agent Michael Burnett told Aberdeen Sheriff Court his client had paid back £8,000 via a cheque and had been making regular monthly payments towards the outstanding money.”

Sentence has been deferred until June.
