A fraudster who took £12,500 from a friend will now only have to pay a small fraction of that back.
Vincent Daly, 29, raided the account of grieving Sue Weaver, who had just lost her partner, while working as a distributor for discount club Utilities Warehouse, Great Yarmouth Magistrates’ Court heard.
Daly, of The Close, Hemsby, pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation when he appeared at court in November.
He was given a 10-month sentence suspended for 15 months.
But at a confiscation hearing at Norwich Crown Court on March 20, the court heard he could not pay back all the money he stole because he did not have it.
