Teenager accused of fraud

A teenage girl was accused yesterday of being part of a serious organised crime gang which used Scotland’s largest travel agent to launder money.

It is alleged that Emma Cuningham, 19, used a bank card and a counterfeit driving licence to withdraw money from the bank account of another person. In a petition at Perth Sheriff Court, Cunningham is also alleged to have formed a fraudulent scheme at Barrhead Travel in the Silverburn shopping centre near Glasgow to obtain money by fraud. A third charge alleges that Cunningham conspired to further serious organised crime by using a fraudulently obtained bank card to withdraw money from an unnamed person’s account.

Cunningham, from Cumbernauld, made no plea or declaration and the case continues.
