Revenue officer tried to steal from HMRC

A former risk analysis intelligence officer working for
HM Revenue & Customs has admitted
submitting fraudulent tax credits claims totalling £9,472.

The Scotsman reported that
Steven McMaster, 35, from Cumbernauld, admitted making the claims during his
trial in the Airdrie Sheriff Court.

McMaster said he presented the claims to his employers, falsely saying he was
making child care payments, in August 2004.

His partner, Kelly Ann Prior, 29, who worked for Morgan Stanley Bank in
Cumbernauld, pleaded guilty to tax fraud.

Sheriff John Morris deferred sentence until next month.
