Agent created fake refunds to book herself a luxury holiday

Holly Cull worked for Thomas Cook in Worthing and stole thousands of pounds. The 30-year-old had racked up huge debt problems when she was living in Lewes.

Cull created false customer refunds, then paid for a £3,000 holiday. Hove Crown Court was told she had only paid £100 towards her luxury trip.

Judge David Rennie accepted that Cull’s fraud was “out of character”, and warned her not to behave in such a “stupid” way again. He ordered her to complete 200 hours of unpaid work in the community in the next 18 months after she admitted fraud by false representation.

Pierce Power, prosecuting, told the court the frauds began in March 2017 when Cull worked for Thomas Cook in Worthing. Between March and August that year, she took £3,885 from the company, and also claimed a £3,323 holiday that she had only paid £100 towards.
