Former PwC tax consultant jailed for stealing from firm

Theft-accused stole more then £34,000 to pay off credit card debts racked up by her boyfriend

A former trainee PricewaterhouseCoopers tax consultant has been jailed for
six months for stealing more than £34,000 from her employers.

Yinka Saunders, a 24-year-old law graduate from Southampton University,
committed the fraud by entering false taxi and train expense claims over 10
months, in order to pay off a £40,000 credit card debt.

The debt, however, had been run up by Saunders’ partner, an older man whom
her parents warned her against, the
Daily
Telegraph
reported.

Saunders, who began working for the No.1 UK firm in August 2004, started
stealing in December 2006 despite an income of £29,500.

She was caught out during a routine audit.

In court, Saunders was described as ‘tearful and contrite’.
