A double glazing salesman has been ordered to pay more than £35,000 in compensation to his victims.

Zulkernan Hussain Mahmood, 30, of West Park Road, Bradford, traded as UKHI Ltd, UK Home Improvements and Energy Efficient Double Glazing.

An investigation by Trading Standards resulted in a conviction for offences relating to taking unauthorised payments from customers’ banks cards and claiming it was for VAT purposes, however, the company were not VAT registered.

The company also removed the windows of customers and refused to install new ones until they received full payment. The company was also found to have supplied poor quality and damaged windows and workers also damaged customers’ property when installing them.

Trading Standards said he also failed to complete work which resulted in customers having to pay others to do it, while complaints from customers about the workmanship were ignored.

Prosecutors said Mahmood used the money gained from his deceptions to fund his extravagant lifestyle.

This included private schooling, designer clothing, jetting around the world to Istanbul, Paris and Las Vegas and attending Floyd Mayweather fights.

He was sentenced at Leeds Crown Court to a 15 month custodial sentence suspended for two years with compensation totalling £37,385.77 to be paid to his victims.
