A WOMAN who”systematically” stole customers’ bank details to pay for beauty products and takeaway food while she was working in a bank’s call centre has been jailed.

Maryam Gill, 22, of Hampden Street, Little Horton, used one victim’s card details to order a Domino’s pizza just 12 seconds after finishing a call with the customer.

While working as a customer service advisor for Santander in Bradford between May 27 and September 7 last year, Gill successfully defrauded customers out of more than £1,800, and also attempted £12,700 of unsuccessful transactions in that period.

Prosecutor Rebecca Young said the majority of the items bought using customers’ details “related to women or to ordering takeaway food”.

She said: “Once she had the card details, sometimes within minutes of the call, she would use the details to order food or beauty items, being delivered to her home address.

“There were nine complainants. The first victim’s loss was £29, when an order was made 12 seconds after speaking with Gill for Domino’s pizza to be delivered to her home.

“Another victim’s details were used 18 times, for sums totalling £1,800.

“Gill purchased fake eyelashes, something from Selfridge’s, other beauty items, paid for Uber taxi rides, and more Domino’s orders.

“She used her own phone when doing so, and that is how she was so quickly identified.

“This was abuse of a position with a high degree of trust.”

In mitigation for Gill, Bradford Crown Court heard she pleaded guilty at the first opportunity, and had no previous convictions.

The court was told she had a “bright academic past” but was “a naive and immature individual” who has brought “humiliation and shame to herself”.

She was also said to be remorseful for her actions, but Recorder Dafydd Enoch QC rejected those claims, and said she had been caught “red handed”.

He said: “I can’t escape the feeling you don’t fully understand the seriousness of what you have done.

“When people work in banks with access to hundreds of people’s personal details, they have a very important responsibility not to abuse their position.

“Time and again the Court of Appeal has said people who steal money by abusing a position of trust will go to prison.

“You used multiple people’s details to steal £1,800 worth of goods for yourself.

“You have no choice but to accept full responsibility for your actions because most of the items bought were beauty products, you were caught red handed, and I do not accept you have been fully remorseful.

“This was a systematic misuse of the public’s information in a position of trust. What sort of message would it send to people who work in banks if they think they can do this?”

Gill, who was dressed all in black, was jailed for three months.
