A WOMAN from Llanfyllin has admitted selling nine hot tubs, a TV and a Playstation that did not exist.

Yasmin Sides, 23, pleaded guilty to 11 charges of committing fraud by false representation in October, November and December 2016.

Prosecutor Helen Tench told Welshpool Magistrates’ Court last Tuesday that there were seven further offences which Sides had not been charged with that were “being taken into consideration”.

Ms Tench said the court was “not in a position to award compensation” to the additional victims of the fraud.

Robert Hanratty, defending, said Sides appeared in court in 2017 for the same offences and that they would be taken into consideration and that the “seriousness would be cranked up”.

Mr Hanratty told the court that the charges were for the rest of the offending that took place in 2016.

“Her life has changed a lot now,” Mr Hanratty said. “She’s a mother of a young child.”

Ms Tench told magistrates that by taking into consideration the additional charges and the ones presented to the court profits of just over £3,000 were made.

Ms Tench told the court that the “victims are dotted all over the country” and that was why it was taking police a while to deal with the offences.

Magistrates adjourned the case to Tuesday, January 29, to wait for more information from the police and granted Sides unconditional bail.

Chair of the bench, Lynette Kretchmer, said: “We will sort this out so you can clear these debts and go forward.”
