£250k, Blew Away, By Rogue Accountant

There was an accountant by the name of Andrew in the small town of Bispham, Lancashire, who seemed like a good accountant who you could trust.

So it came as no surprise when he landed the job of “head accountant” at National League football club AFC Fylde. A club who hold ambitions of one day making it to the big leagues, which means they need their books balancing and plenty of cash in the kitty.

Things were going well on the pitch for AFC Fylde, but strange things started to happen off the pitch…and all arrows started pointing towards the office of the accountant.

The numbers were not adding up, and pretty soon the cops were called in. What they found shocked everybody at the club…even the Right Back.

This “trusted” accountant who went by the name of Andrew had quietly stole close to £250k from the club. A bit here and a bit there…he was pocketing a bit of cash everywhere.

He went on expensive shopping trips to places like Harrads and purchased designer Chanel handbags. That was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to luxury gifts, as prosecutors said he was living a “champagne lifestyle.”

Not only that but he enjoyed other finer things in life such as gambling, drugs and web cam models. He often started off the day stuffing the stolen money up his nose, before putting on a few bets at the local bookies and then chatting to web cam models at £8 a minute.

One web cam model in particular caught his fancy, and it wasn’t long until he took her out to Harrods. Just like an ordinary couple…living the Champagne lifestyle.

Although this was no ordinary couple and as soon as the accountant was caught with his pants down and arrested then the webcam model disappeared back into cyberspace.

Long story short and Andrew the accountant was soon in court and facing a judge. If he expected leniency then he was in for a shock, because on that day there was none. The judge had that hammer in his hands and he wasn’t afraid to use it.

“32 Months in the slammer for you,” said the judge.

So Andrew the rogue accountant is behind bars for a couple of years or more, and in our opinion here at Contractor Accountants it just goes to show the difference between a good accountant and a bad accountant.

A good accountant can be an asset and help take your company from strength to strength.

On the other hand, a bad accountant can nearly sink the ship and ensure you never make it to the Premier League.
