A LOCHGELLY woman went on a spending spree using other people’s bank details.

The victims included Donna McCall’s own mum.

McCall, also known as Dempster, admitted a series of fraudulent transactions in obtaining goods and appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

The 39-year-old, of Stationhead Road, had previously submitted guilty pleas by letter.

On August 12 and 19, 2019, having formed a fraudulent scheme, she used a credit card in someone else’s name to obtain goods worth £96 from Next Retail by fraud.

Between March 27 and April 13, 2019 she similarly obtained goods worth £355 from Grattan Retail by fraud.

On March 25 and 27, 2019 she obtained goods worth £263 from JD Williams Retail by fraud.

Between January 6 and May 5, 2020 she obtained goods worth £2,251 by fraud from Groupon Retain by using the bank details of her mother.

Depute fiscal Amy Robertson said the first victim was a woman who had previously lived at McCall’s address.

When letters were delivered for the woman, McCall used her details to obtain a credit card and bought goods with it.

The matter came to light when the woman was turned down for a mortgage because of a poor credit score.

McCall’s next victim was her own mother, who became suspicious when her bank card was declined at a shop.

The court heard the woman has a support worker who made inquiries about the matter and took her to her bank branch.

The woman was shown various transactions that she knew nothing about.

Defence solicitor Jaclyn Robertson said her client works in a care home.

She said McCall had been drinking heavily at the time of the offences but was now living a “much more positive lifestyle”.

Sheriff Francis Gill imposed a community payback order with 160 hours of unpaid work.
