Three Latvians who have denied a joint offence of conspiracy to defraud a bank of nearly £10,000 yesterday had their charges split.

Norwich Crown Court has heard four Barclays Bank customers had their accounts “milked” via the internet to a tune of £9,500.

Previously, Svetlana Dubr-ovska, 35, of Methwold Road, Whitington, near King's Lynn, Vladimirs Sergejevs, 44, of Kings Green, Lynn and Aleksandrs Vladinovskis, 35, of Brompton Place, Lynn, all stood jointly charged.

Yesterday each separately denied conspiracy to defraud in March, May and June 2005.

Richard Wood, prosecuting, said the mobile phones of each had been analysed but did not contain phone calls or texts to each other.

Dubrovska claimed she had carried out a money transfer for her friend. Vladinovskis said the employment agency he worked for started the accounts for them so they could be paid their wages.
